Let Squashbox Theatre take you on a trip through the universe, from Cornwall to the edges of space and time! Along the way we will explore the solar system, learn about the stars and constellations, visit distant galaxies, and hear the fascinating story of John Couch Adams, the Cornishman who discovered Neptune.
"Universarama!" is a marvellous blend of spectacle, storytelling and cabaret, using puppets, props, music and comedy to convey the awe and wonder of the cosmos, all within an accessible and unique family show.

Golowan Festival, Penzance
Golowan was one of the last mid-Summer Festivals practiced in Cornwall.
In the 1890s, the Penzance government outlawed the Festival due to the rising insurance premiums for the towns business community. Traditionally blazing tar barrels had been paraded around the town's streets and the surrounding hills had bonfires set at the top, which were seen all around Mounts Bay and beyond.
