Present / Future (Talking)
Meeting at Seven Stars, Penryn. Please bring notebook or camera.

These two events invite you to think creatively about the landscape of Penryn through focusing on places of social gathering, (hi)story telling, entertainment and exchange. On foot and in the pub, we’ll be mapping Penryn’s lost public houses and identifying future visions of social spaces in 50 years time. If you are passionate about your local pub or social space, interested in beer and the revival in brewing local real ale, or fascinated by the rich cultural heritage of the town and the role that Penryn’s pubs and inns continue to play in it, these events are for you.

Recommended age 16+
