Falmouth Art Gallery, Municipal Buildings, The Moor, Falmouth TR11 2RT
Pride and Prejudice, Hall for Cornwall, Truro Thurs 3 – Sat 5 Nov
I read P&P for A Level English, which kinda sucked the joy out of it for me, until that is, Colin Firth donned his britches. No CF in this performance, But I’m told Matthew Kelly adequately fills those britches – this energetic rom-com has been a sell-out up country. And heads up – Amber, over at Muddy Stilettos Surrey saw the production last week and shared her review with us.
£24-33, Hall for Cornwall, Back Quay, Truro TR1 2LL
El Domingo Español, Pintxo, Fowey, Sun 6 Nov until month end
Winter warmer warning! Throughout November those lovely amigos at Pintxo in Fowey will be cooking up a tasty Catalan stew every Sunday along with a jug of wine for £12….what a great way to spend a Sunday lunch. They don’t take reservations though, and can get pretty busy so turn up early and enjoy a Fino while you wait.
Sundays, 12-5pm, Pintxo, 38 The Espanade, Fowey PL23 1HZ
