Learn about what makes a great cup

Event Date: Thursday, 30th March

Start Time: 6:30 PM

Cornwall plays host to some of the best coffee shops in the UK, many of which are supplied by Helston-based Origin Coffee Roasters. What Origin don’t know about sourcing and producing great coffee is not worth knowing.

As usual, there will be ample opportunity to network and catch up with fellow hubbers.

Cost: £5

Date and time: Thursday 30th March, 6.30pm

Remember sitting infront of the television, watching Total Wipeout and bragging about how easily you could complete the course? Well, now’s your chance to shine!

This month we’re inviting you to join us for a night of floating, giant-inflatable fun! That’s right, we’ll be donning our best wetsuits and heading down to the Kernow Adventure Park, near Penryn, to take on their floating circuit.

After all the excitement we’ll be refueling with a pasty and a drink or two, whilst squeezing in that all important networking! But, in all honesty, what better way to create a relationship than battling it out on a giant inflatable in a quarry!?

We ask that you bring a wetsuit with you, however if you don’t have one there are spares available – they just might not be a perfect fit! You’ll also need to bring your best beach towel, for obvious reasons.

To give you time to get your wetsuit on, and get physced up for the fun, we ask that you arrive at Kernow Adventure Park between 6 – 6.30pm.

Once again, because of the nature of this event, tickets are limited to 25 places and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets for this event cost £5 which will include a drink and a pasty.
