Cornwall Design Fair

The Cornwall Design developed from the Design Fair first run by Hidden Art Cornwall.

Hidden Art Cornwall ran a design fair in 2006, with 65 designer-makers, growing to over 80 in 2008 with an exhibition of selected work inside Godolphin House itself called Hidden Art Curated, as well as design-led entertainment for families.

Cornwall Design Fair in association with Hidden Art

In 2009, the first Cornwall Design Fair in association with Hidden Art took place successfully at the inaugural fair at Trereife Park with 51 designer-makers. In 2011, 74 designer-makers booked in for the fair attracting more than 3,500 visitors.

Comments from exhibitors from the past three years include:

“The transition from Godolphin to Trereife was made very easy”, “A very high quality of work on show”, “It was a lovely event, well organised and well attended”.

“Thanks to all of you at Trereife for your hard work, it was a lovely weekend”, “Excellent event – well done, a lot of hard work obviously went into it”, “Great atmosphere, really enjoyed the venue and feel very positive about the contacts made at the event”, “My best Hidden Art/Cornwall event”, “On par with Country Living event held at Hampton Court”.

The Curated Design at Trereife showcased seven designer/makers work in the rooms of Trereife House and this was opened up to the public. There was a mixed exhibition of local artists in the main gallery and above the Courtyard Café was a photographic exhibition. In 2011, entertainment was provided for children as well as music and workshops and demonstrations. There were a number of specialist food outlets complimenting the menu being served by the Courtyard Café

2013 sees the return of this prestigious event to Trereife. The location has the benefit of direct access from the busy A30 Land’s End road and is situated just one mile west of Penzance.

One of Britain's best seaside hotels

According to The Telegraph we're one of them!

The Abbey Hotel, Penzance, Cornwall

With its blue-painted Georgian Gothic façade, The Abbey stands in old   Penzance, commanding views across the harbour to St Michael’s Mount (sunrise   is marvellous). Step inside and enter a comforting, mildly bohemian haven created by its owner, the fabled model Jean Shrimpton, nearly 30 years ago, and now run by her son, Thaddeus. The six bedrooms and two family apartment are all entrancing, and there is the prettiest of walled gardens. The hotel also has its own restaurant, The Slipway, next door.

Summer in February

We were fortunate to be mentioned in a recent article in The Times about a new film that was shot in West Cornwall called Summer in February. It is an English drama romance, adapted from Jonathan Smith's novel of the same name.

The article is below and I have also included the trailer.

Dominic Cooper (The Devil's Double) stars as AJ (Later Sir Alfred) Munnings, with Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) as Florence Carter-Wood and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as Gilbert Evans, in SUMMER IN FEBRUARY, based on Jonathan Smith's novel about love and loss among a bohemian colony of artists which flourished in the wild coastal region of Cornwall before the First World War.
