Creative Breakfast on Tour: Hannah Ray and Mike Lay

A north coast outing for our Creative Breakfasts. Open skies, cliff tops and sea views beckon...

Our Creative Breakfasts are the fuel that keeps the Stranger studio firing; a healthy measure of inspiration to kickstart the day.

This May, we’re playing away – bringing a slice of the early morning action to our north coast friends. From the Open Surf warehouse in Wheal Kitty, St Agnes, come drink coffee with us and learn something new. Expect a double helping of creative inspiration and next level pastries…


Hannah Ray
Before she ran Vogue’s flagship Instagram account, social media maestro Hannah Ray was the creative producer on the most followed account in the world – @instagram itself. And rewinding again, she broke new ground in the Guardian newsroom too. Fluent in the languages of new media and experimental by approach, she’s a storyteller above all. A consultant for the likes of Tate, Art Fund and the BBC, she’s a master in finding fresh ways to combine words and images and building a community that listens.



Mike Lay
Surfer, writer, sometime poet, Mike Lay has lyrical style in and out of the water. Surfing professionally for Reef, and writing for surf and travel magazines, have taken him from his home in West Penwith on adventures all over the world, gathering inspiration for his own creative output. He shares tales and insights from along the way.



Tickets: £3.50 (including a coffee and pastry) available here.
