Top things to do in January 2020

7 January

A new year is finally here, and you're ready to get stuck into things. But where to start? We're giving you the best things to do this January in Cornwall

Hidden Cinema

Entertain the kids with family friendly daytime movies at The Hidden Cinema, St Mawes, perfect for a rainy day. There's a whole host of films on offer this month,  we particularly like the look of the photo-realistic computer-generated remake of Disney’s traditionally animated 1994 film The Lion King.

Unbounded: Contemporary Art Practices in Cornwall

Until 26 January

Unbounded is an exhibition of contemporary art exploring some of the many layers of Cornwall’s social and environmental landscapes. This inspiring exhibition showcases a vast range of artists, each working in or deeply connected to Cornwall, whose art-practices extend beyond the geographical boundaries of the county.

Signs of human activity and industry are becoming evident in even the most natural environments. The Eden Project, itself the transformation of a barren landscape into a haven for plant life and community, provides the perfect setting for an exhibition of works exploring our connection to Cornish landscapes; our human relationship with and impact on it.
