From tiny acorns

Having recently welcomed two brand new Administrators to post – Richie Cawley as Programming Administrator, and Amanda Forde as Office Administrator – The Acorn Theatre in Penzance continues to go from strength to strength.

Richie, who has already managed the Acorn bar for six years, now manages all programme related responsibilities, from booking artists and performers to promoting them, while Amanda looks after the office administration, as well as communications and marketing. She also co-ordinates Acorn’s friendly team of volunteers and is currently in the process of re-launching the Acorn Friends Scheme, so watch this space!

This year, 165 acts are already programmed, including comedian Henning Wehn on 19th May. What’s more, the theatre is undergoing refurbishment, the Cabaret Bar already enjoying a new look. The goal is to continue bringing brilliant acts at affordable prices to Penzance, inviting everyone to join in and enjoy what the Acorn has to offer.

Coffee and kitesurfing at The Hoxton Special

With amazing views toward St Michael’s Mount, The Hoxton Special is an exciting venue for watersports and coffee lovers alike. Putting to use the abandoned lifeguarding hut, just along from the station house car park in Marazion, the hut offers fun and excitement for all the family.

With stand-up paddle board rental, kitesurfing lessons, yoga classes, and the best coffee on the beach, it’s a great venue for those that want to kick back with a lovely coffee having sent the younger ones off to do some activities under the watchful eye of the team.

Easy going and approachable, the whole crew is super friendly and always happy to help, and with their wealth of experience and qualifications, you know you’re in for a great day out.
