Relaxed sessions, Wheal Martyn (18 Jan)
At Wheal Martyn visit the original Victorian Clay Works, bursting at the seams with tools and machinery and real stories of Cornwall’s largest mining industry. If you prefer to enjoy the museum at a quieter pace, Wheal Martyn is running sessions on 18 Jan that are especially suited to people with autism, anxiety and associated conditions. Have fun with object handling, ASD-friendly activities and trails.
Lanhydrock Night Orienteering (18 Jan)
Cornwall Orienteering Club runs a series of low key, informal events, with as much emphasis on the social side as the competition and they’re really keen to see some new people trying it out. All you need is a decent torch (plus a backup torch and a whistle) – fitness and speed are less important than in day orienteering. Start at dusk and find your way around the course before retiring to the pub.
Ewe Scanning, Lost Gardens of Heligan (19 Jan 11am)
Join The Lost Gardens of Heligan to see the first glimpse of new life, where they will be scanning their flock of pregnant ewes LIVE in front of visitors inside The Barn.
Wassail, Harrowbarrow & Metherell Community Orchard (19 Jan)

The Wreckers Border Morris will be leading the noise – bring along instruments to join in the fun -and help wake up the trees to encourage a good harvest in the Autumn.
Picnic with a porpoise, St Agnes (19 Jan)
Join the Seaquesters at different clifftop locations around the Cornish coast to look for some amazing marine wildlife, learn about these animals and about Seaquest and meeting other like-minded people while enjoying a cliff-top tea and cake! Bring appropriate clothing, water, flasks of warm drinks and some snacks to share.
