Coffee and creativity on the 23 February


What better way to start the day than a hefty helping of inspiration? Our thoughts exactly. Throughout the winter we’ve taken it upon ourselves to brighten up the dark mornings with a spark of creativity, courtesy of some pretty impressive individuals.

Our creative breakfast series will be a chance to hear from artists, designers, writers and makers of all sorts each at the top of their game and with fascinating stories to tell.

There’ll be coffee, croissants and compelling conversation aplenty. The breakfasts are free, relaxed and really just a chance to kickstart your day.

Our second creative breakfast is on Thursday 23 February with Mark Jenkin, award-winning British filmmaker and writer, whose been making waves in the Cornish-British film industry. Mark gained critical success with his first feature,  Golden Burn which won The Frank Copplestone First Time Director’s Award at the Celtic Film and Television Award in 2002. He’s followed this with numerous documentaries and low-budget feature films including Man Who Needed a Traffic Light,  The Rabbit and The Lobsterman, a documentary on the life of Cornish playwright Nick Darke, all made under his production company, O-Region based in Cornwall.

If you want to come along let us know so we make sure we have enough pastries to go round.

Look forward to seeing you then. Doors open at 8, and the talking starts at 8.30.
