A guide to arts and culture in Cornwall with ideas to suit all ages, interests and budgets. Browse listings covering outstanding local workshops to world famous galleries, local theatre and film to the best live music venues.

Cornwall has been a natural home to inspiration, art and ideas since the early 19th century. So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall. Whilst the Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum, The Minack Theatre and the Eden Project enjoy the beam of the international spotlight, outstanding local galleries and artists' workshops are everywhere, showcasing Cornwall's vibrant art scene.
