Tomorrow evening, the 8th of May, we have Falmouth’s very own Cafe Scientifique kicking off with a lecture from Dr Sasha Dall on; “Unintelligent design: understanding the complexities of life”
Dr Sasha is the Snr Lecturer in Mathematical Biology of Exeter’s Tremough campus, and will enlighten us with this broad introduction to the modern study of evolutionary biology, with particular focus on animal behaviour.
Sasha will also be able to give an indication of other areas which his research study group explores; and this may prompt ideas and suggestions for future talks.
Sasha’s talk will start at 8pm, run for 20-30 minutes; and then we will have a brief break for refreshment before the Q&A.
To help manage what might be a sudden rush of orders, you can order food in advance, and you will also be able to pre-order interval drinks on the night.

Maxwell Golden stars in a fish-out-of-water tale of an MC’s journey from the cliffs of Cornwall to the streets of London on the search for a Hip Hop community. What will he find?
Last October we hosted a very special pre-tour performance of CountryBoys Struggle. We are delighted to be able to invite Maxwell Golden back for another intimate warm-up gig ahead of his short tour of Cornish town halls.
Country Boy’s Struggle tells the endearing story of Michael, a hopeful MC who travels from the wild Cornish cliffs of Bude to the bright lights ofLondonon a mission to find his place in the city’s hip hop scene. His dreams very quickly clash with reality as Michaal faces the challenges of washing dishes, stage fright and eccentric flat mates. Maxwell Golden brings the story to life with a mixture of physical theatre, character driven comedy and an impressive range as an MC.
Fusing hip-hop and theatre, comedy and drama, this one man-show is an unmissable experience for audiences both young and old. The intimate and friendly atmosphere at The Courtyard Deli offers the rare opportunity for a small audience to see a high quality theatre performance i
‘Maxwell Golden delivers a searing beat monologue to music…an excellent piece that does a lot with a little.’ n a unique, intimate environment.
- British Theatre Guide on Everything Must Go
“It is a privilege to watch him find his way, not only in London, but within himself and his community. The struggle is very real, but the message is positive and life-enhancing.”
– Avril Silk, remotegoat.co.uk

Having just updated details of our upcoming events I felt it was about time to review our last evening of entertainment… Helped along by a lovely little note from some of our guests on February 9th.
Mac Dunlop lead an evening of poetry and music made complete with the art of food, presented as a 3 course meal with bites of entertainment between each course. Mac was joined by Rob Barratt, Nick Jarvis, Seamus Carey and Danielle Allen; who all offered their own take on the upcoming Valentine’s Day…
One guest offered this review:
Coming up at The Courtyard Deli Arts Cafe
A Caravanserai Valentines Dinner
Thursday the 9th of February from 7pm
Tickets £20 in advance only, including an Asian inspired three course meal.
A celebration of food and entertainment for friends’ and lovers’ alike.
In December we hosted our first collaboration with Caravanserai; a Yuletide Dinner accompanied by an evening of poetic entertainment. The evening was a great success and it was the perfect way to kick off a busy Christmas at the deli. The event was so well received that we couldn’t wait to invite Mac Dunlop and friends back for an encore.
If music be the food of love, play on!
Did you know the Romans worshipped the apple as an aphrodisiac?
That the word comes from the Greek god Aphrodite?
The romance of the journey continues as we stock up on our aphrodisiac charms – from the mouths of poets into the hearts of diners. Come and share the love, with Rob Barratt, the cuddly Bard of Bodmin, Nick Jarvis, the lascivious Voice of Falmouth, hear the sonorous temptations of Seamas Carey’s music, and the Sirens calling you from Danielle Allen’s poetic shores. While your host Mac Dunlop attempts to hold back all temptations with his own commingling musings on the meaning of love.
Caravanserai is an ongoing project run by artist Annie Lovejoy and writer Mac Dunlop from Treloan Coastal Holidays on the Roseland Peninsula. They offer a residency space as well as hosting a series of fireside talks over the summer period. To date Caravanserai has hosted artists, writers, musicians, storytellers, foragers and geographers.
Guests can enjoy a delicious, seasonal menu with Indian inspiration, featuring:
Indian Breads and our Trio of Homemade Chutneys
Our Fragrant Rose Petal Curry with Saffron Rice & Onion Bhaji
Sweet Asian Assiette of Afters
As always we can cater for specific dietary requirements on request including Gluten free, vegan and dairy free.
We are fully licensed and a range of alcoholic and soft drinks will be available to compliment the meal.
After a great Christmas it feels good to hit the ground running with loads lined up for 2012.
We have new products on the horizon; the imminent arrival of our new fly-wheel meat slicer and some refurbishment on the cards; that’s just for starters, so we’re hoping for another exciting year of developments at the Courtyard Deli.
Normal opening hours have resumed – including Sunday’s from 10-16:00 with the small exception of January 22nd (we are off out on our belated and well earned Christmas-do for the day, sorry about that).
- Lunchtime Take-Away Meal Deal
- A return show from Caravanserai… details to follow.
- Next art exhibition dates
- New Menu including an exciting new Breakfast & Children’s Menu
- Outside Catering - did you know we offered a whole variety of solutions for all manner of events?

Joanna Neary – Youth Club
Fresh from Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Brighton based comedian Joanna Neary returns to her home county to present a one woman show inspired by Camborne Youth Club and growing up in a town where there was once an industry and now there’s none. ‘Youth Club’ threatens to be both delightful and humiliating in equal measure. A bit like real life.
Where do you go when you’re 15, bored, living in a backwater and it’s 1987? Joanna’s delightful, hilarious story of teenage longing, crushed dreams, weak squash and table tennis.
- Meet! Mr Eddy, the well-meaning Youth Club Leader who serves the (warm) squash at the hatch
- Admire! Wayne Gayson’s outfit
- Gasp! as Diana Budd attempts to play ping pong
- Frown! as you are hear tell of fashion crimes from the late 1980s
- Sing along! to the rude nursery rhymes that clearly rang out across our nations playgrounds
Joanna Neary has established herself as a well-respected character comedian. Her one woman live shows have won her rave reviews and critical acclaim. She has also appeared on our screens as Judith in Johnny Vegas’ hit BBC3 series Ideal, as well as supporting roles in Skins, That Mitchell and Webb Look and Armando Iannucci’s Time Trumpet.
She has described her first gig as a performance in a friends living room whilst she was a student at Falmouth School of Art. ‘I was 17 and told a story sitting on a beanbag whilst smoking and wearing my friend Sybil’s silk satin pyjamas. The cigarette set fire to my trousers but I reached the end of the story whilst patting out the flames.’
‘Neary is a character actress par excellence, not only are her characters well observed and immaculately performed, but they are well written and, most importantly, funny… A Joyce Grenfell of our age.’ The Guardian, 2008
‘She writes with perception and humour and narrates with an energy and enthusiasm that make it clear that she is really enjoying what she is doing. This energy extends to interludes in the dialogue where she manages to sing in that truly cringing teenage style – discordant and loud – and perform a much admired mime involving a table tennis bat.’, Tim Wilcock, Fringe Review, 2011
So August really is in full swing! Falmouth week has brought hundreds of new faces to the Deli and we even managed to squeeze in a night out amongst it all
Now a lot of our energies are thinking about September when we will be introducing our Italian focus with some new products, Italian specials as well as a new range available from Cornish Food Market. Part way through the month we will hang our next exhibition bringing another new dimension to our gallery seating upstairs. The Arts Cafe is taking on a new form (subscribe or email firstname.lastname@example.org to stay in the know), and we hope to bring you evenings of wine tasting as well as espresso training.
Hopefully there’s a few reasons to stay chirpy despite the summer flying by . Would love to know what you’re excited about, leave your comments or drop me a line email@example.com …
