What’s On in and around Falmouth this Christmas
Some intrepid explorers may disagree but for me there is nowhere quite like Falmouth and Cornwall at Christmas. The wonderfully unpredictable nature of the weather means the brisk after dinner walk is full of interest and always the perfect opportunity to fashion THAT Christmas jumper. But how do we get into the festive spirit?
Once those all important lights have been switched on and the first roast chestnuts of the season have been devoured, it’s time to enjoy all the fun activities that will fill you full of Christmas Spirit, (and we’re not just talking mulled wine).
A number of brilliant creative free workshops tailored for the festive season are running through December. Stained glass window decorations, hanging decorations and fairy wings are just some of the things you can make. And what is this, ‘Pictures while you Pedal’, all about?
Saturday 1st December – 2 -3pm, ‘Stained Glass’
Saturday 8th December – 2-3pm, ‘Pilchards’, Hanging Decorations
Saturday 15th Decemebr – 2-3pm, ‘Stupid Cupid’, Making Wings

Miracle Theatre Company – ‘Frankenstein’.
We all love a Panto at Christmas but if you fancy something a little bit different but with equal amounts of excitement and bravado you can never go wrong with a performance by this company.
‘When power is cut off from the Eternalife cryonics facility, Frank must race against time to construct a superhuman of epic proportions that can carry the precious genes of the rich and famous into the future.
His cut and paste creation is a hideous mistake. Feared by its creator, shunned by the world, the monster takes revenge. It craves the one thing it can never have…’
The Miracle Theater has held it’s roots in Cornwall since 1979 and though the crew have taken their brilliance all over the Country they remain loyal to their home. Any performance from these actors should not be missed.
There are dates through-out December with performances across Cornwall but if you want to stay local then The Tolmen Center in Constantine is the place for you.
December 6th & 7th – Show Starts at 7.30pm
