What's on - November 2008

Irrespective of the season, there's always something going on in Cornwall.  We've set out below some ideas for great days out. There's also a very useful publication called Inside Cornwall that provides much more information and can be purchased in almost all newsagents in the County.  Two other good sources of information are King Harry's Cornwall and the Visit Cornwall websites.
