Your comprehensive guide to the best events, pop-ups and things to do around the river this November.
November in Cornwall may mean evenings are longer and the days chillier, but that's no reason to retreat indoors. From cosy seasonal pop-ups to a world-class classical music festival this month is packed with a whole host of ace events and things to do.
SHIPS Exhibition - Peter Trotman
3 September — 21 November
Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro
Raised in the harbour town of Falmouth, Peter grew up surrounded by the juxtaposition of natural beauty and a busy, working port, where ships and the sea were a constant presence. His work attempts to capture, not just a Cornish sense of place but of many places simultaneously, often mixing abstract compositional, conceptual and figurative elements.
Music at Tresanton
2 — 4 November
The Tresanton Chapel, St Mawes
For over a decade Music at Tresanton has been gaining praise for its innovative programming and concerts. The festival takes place annually in November, and offers a unique chance to hear a carefully devised programme of four concerts, played by the finest classical musicians, in the intimate and relaxed atmosphere of the beautifully restored St Mawes Methodist Chapel.
