Superflashy newsflash! Hot local goss right here

Hot news in Cornwall! We've got the gossip from the Duchy for September including where to see celebs, new openings - and closings, sob!


Doughnut Addict is opening a new branch in Wadebridge this month – you’ll find it next door to Kiln, and handily near the Camel Trail for a mid-cycle snack.

Meanwhile in Newquay, you’ll find new coffee roasters Grounded Coffee Co just by Towan Beach.

If you or your kids were inspired by the Tokyo 2020ne games, we hear that Cornwall BMX Racing Club is set to open a national standard BMX track, which is super exciting news for Truro.


The end of the summer always brings seasonal venues to a close, but for Muddy fave and LBB Surfside / Rum Bar in Polzeath, this past weekend was the final one. Everyone’s favourite (not so) secret beach bar saw the last party in eight years – and will be sadly missed: not sure where else drinking rum cocktails on the sand with journos, comedians, ex-prime ministers and the local surfers could happen, with everyone still leaving as friends?

It’s also the end of an era for the famous turquoise S H Ferrell & Son in St Ives, who are closing their doors on 30 October. After four generations of bakers, they’re now retiring.


Remember when Muddy interviewed the first woman to be head of a Spaceport? Mel Thorpe has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the Western Morning News Business Awards in the Business Person of the Year awards!


The Headland Hotel in Newquay (recent Muddy award winners for Best Day Spa) are recruiting for a grand high witch – after all, it was the setting for The Witches! Only apply if you’re adept at terrifying adults and children alike, with a particular talent in turning people into mice…


The word on the social vine is that Game of Thrones has resumed filming down in West Cornwall, with film crews and even Matt Smith himself spotted in Kynance Cove and Holywell Bay. Speaking of Mr Smith, you can also spot him (and Cornwall) in Edgar Wright’s new flick, Last Night in Soho, the storyline of which is set in the 60s. It centres round a girl from Redruth headed to the London College of Fashion, and the resulting fall out… it’s out October 29th.

Which, we also hear on Twitter, is the same day that Tori Amos (who spends part of her time in Bude) releases her 16th album, called Ocean to Ocean – recorded in and inspired by Cornwall during the 3rd lockdown.

And, to complete the circle, Google’s transatlantic 16 fibre pair data cable, called Grace Hopper, finally made it ashore to none other than Bude this week, after months of delays due to bad weather – meaning we can have better 4K streaming capability. Phew!
