What's On In Cornwall This Winter

What's On In Cornwall This Winter

Had enough of hiding away from the weather? It might still be winter, but there is plenty going on in Cornwall that's worth getting out the house for, from muddy trail runs to calming garden yoga, art exhibitions and more! We've rounded up the best of what's on in Cornwall this winter...

Trust 10, various dates until April 

Fresh air, splashing mud and beautiful views - all signs of a good winter day out! Join this 10k run around the stunning Godolphin estate. It's fun, free and suitable for over 14's - you can even bring the dog! The tea room will be open afterwards for post run cuppas and cake. Free event.

Yoga at Trebah Garden, until 26th February

Feel more harmonious, healthy and happy after a yoga session at Trebah Gardens. The one hour and 15 minute sessions will be surrounded by nature and with beautiful views down the garden to the Helford River. On warmer days sessions will take place outside in the sun.

Ro Doleman is an experienced teacher who has a practical approach, entwining the breath, body and mind. During the class expect to explore both the physical and esoteric aspects of the practice. There will be flowing movements, moments of stillness, breathing and always a long relaxation to finish the session. This class is suitable for all experience levels.

Penrose Tree Planting Day, 30th January

Come along for the day to help plant over 8,000 trees and create new woodland right next to Helston. The goal for this project is to plant as many trees as possible with the help of volunteers and local people. Family friendly - all ages welcome to join in. You will be provided with all the tools necessary to plant a tree. Free event.

Music of Cornwall, 2nd February

An evening of Cornish tunes and songs from the 1700s to the present day. Jackson's Claret play traditional instruments, breathing new life into arrangements of both well known and less well known songs, tunes and dances. Free event.

Earth Photo Exhibition, 3rd - 29th February

On display at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Earth Photo is an international competition and exhibition created by Forestry England, the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Parker Harris to showcase photographs and videos that document the natural world.

Earth Photo tells compelling stories about our planet, its inhabitants, its beauty, fragility, and resilience.

Outi Pieski Exhibition, from 10th February

Head to Tate St Ives to discover this exhibition from Outi Pieski, a Sámi visual artist based in Ohcejohka, Finland. This will be her first large-scale exhibition in the UK.

Pieski's paintings and installations explore several themes, including the culture and identity of the Sámi people – who live in the region of Sápmi, which now includes the northern part of Scandinavia and Kola peninsula in Russia.

In many of her projects, she incorporates duodji (the traditional craft practices of the Sámi people) using materials such as wood and textile. For Pieski, duodji is also a way of revitalising connections between past and future generations.

Through this thought-provoking show, Pieski raises important questions around ancestral return, indigenous people’s rights, and the relationship between humans, animals and nature.
