The Poly

Based in an iconic listed building in the heart of Falmouth, The Poly is a thriving charity, promoting engagement in the arts, sciences and Cornish history through film, live events, exhibitions, lectures and workshops.
 

The Cornwall Polytechnic Society (the Poly) was founded in 1833, the inspiration of Anna Maria and Caroline, the teenage daughters of Robert Were Fox of G.C. Fox & Co, a prominent Falmouth firm of shipping agents.

The Poly’s vision is to be Cornwall's foremost state of the art venue and community hub providing exciting, inclusive and innovative entertainment, learning and development opportunities in the arts, sciences and history.
