What’s on in Cornwall This November

From ice skating at Eden to our new cocktail club, we've hand-picked our top diary dates to help you discover what's on in Cornwall this November.

Cocktail Club


Every Thursday


The Alverton Bar, Truro

Clock off on a Thursday and make your way to The Alverton bar for our cocktail club.

It’s time to kick back and relax with a whole host of tantalising cocktail combos to liven up your Thursday night. We’re putting the sweet and sour into happy hour, with expertly shaken or stirred tipples just the way you like it. Let our talented bar team shake things up, with our menu served from 5pm until late.

The perfect way to welcome in the weekend early!

Ice skating


Throughout November


Eden Project, St Austell

We’re ready to hit the ice because Eden‘s glittering ice skating rink is back for the winter season.

Get into the festive spirit by heading to the former clay pit in St Austell, putting on your skates and testing your skills at Cornwall’s most popular ice skating venue.

If you’re looking to go freestyle enjoy one of the many forty-minute slots on offer. But for those looking to learn the tricks of the sport, the Eden Project are also offering lessons from their expert teachers throughout the season. Discover ice skating at Eden here.

Port Elliot Estate, St Germans

Fireworks night is back with a bang!

And after a year long hiatus, Port Elliot Estate is ready to welcome you back for their spectacular display.

Head to the historic house and gardens, based in St Germans, to celebrate this year’s bonfire night in style. Take in the verdant gardens, enjoy delicious and warming food from some of Cornwall’s top vendors, savour your tipples of choice, then get ready to watch the fantastical display starting at 8.30pm.

This is a bonfire night celebration not to be missed. Book your tickets here.

Big Doggy Day Out Christmas Festival


Sunday 7th November


Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge

We’re not the only ones who enjoy the festive season…

Get your pooch feeling merry at the Big Doggy Day Out Christmas Festival in Wadebridge. A huge range of stalls will be selling the perfect gifts to get those tails wagging.

Once the shopping is sorted, let your four-legged companions loose on the Christmas games, including a snowball run and the santa paws grotto.

Make sure you book your tickets to avoid the puppy dog eyes!

A Food and Wine Tour around the World


Friday 12th November


Truro Cookery School

This gourmet cookery evening will inspire and ignite your tastebuds.

Join expert teachers Maria and Allistair from The Truro Cookery School for this exciting foodie course.

The idea is simple. Enjoy small plates paired perfectly with delicious wines, provided by the school’s long-time friends Old Chapel Cellars.

This tantalising evening will be in support of the commendable Cornish charity, Man Down Cornwall, with £15 from every ticket sold donated to the charity. We can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday evening. Tickets can be purchased here.

Remembrance Sunday


Sunday 14th November


Boscawen Street, Truro

Pay tribute this Remembrance Sunday.

On 14th November, the Royal British Legion Service of Remembrance will be held at Truro Cathedral at 3:15pm.

Pay tribute to the service men and women who have, and continue to, sacrifice their lives for the good of our country, on this nationwide day of respect.

An Enchanting Lantern Experience


From 20th November


Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Austell

Enjoy an enchanting lantern experience at the Lost Gardens of Heligan’s annual winter event.

The Liverpool Lantern Company have once again joined forces with the award-winning organisation to create a spectacular display of incredible lanterns that will illuminate the garden’s trails. Expect to discover impressive creations of flora, fauna and wildlife that will both inspire and educate about the wonders of Cornwall’s indigenous species.

Last year’s event sold out in record time, so we recommend getting in there quick. Tickets can be pre-booked and start from £7.
