What lies Beneath and Beyond Cornwall? Inspired by this theme, 22 local writers took up the challenge to write short stories for the latest Cornwall Writers anthology Cornwall Beneath and Beyond

Join us as we celebrate the book’s publication day and all the hard work and creativity by our wonderful authors and all the other people involved. Armed with drinks and nibbles, you’ll be able to mingle with the authors, listen to teasing glimpses into their stories, ask the authors questions and maybe even buy a few of our books! We look forward to seeing you there and please do bring as many family and friends as you’d like. We’re so proud of our beautiful new book and want to share it with everyone!

£5 entry includes welcoming drink and nibbles and a wonderful experience inside 101-year-old Lady Daphne at Charlestown Harbour.

Tickets limited to just 50. The presentation will be held in the Main Cargo Hold that carried China Clay from Charlestown Harbour 1923-37.

Signed books available at the event.

Licensed Bar available for the evening. Bar opens 6pm.

Please be aware that Lady Daphne is an adapted early 20th Century cargo barge and those aboard are requested to exercise a higher degree of responsibility for their own safety, including hazards such as low ceilings, steep staircases, slippery decks (if wet or icy) etc, and many multi level trip hazards, both on and below deck.


Whilst they try to accommodate all ages and abilities, please note, there is no wheelchair access and some element of difficulty on board for those with restricted mobility.

And we do ask that you respect the boat as she is an historic and antique sailing barge, one of few remaining in service today.
