Although still a little chilly it is absolutely gorgeous out there! We’re starting to feel in the bank holiday mood already and thought a touch of Tapas might be there perfect beginning to your weekend too?
With the switch on of Falmouth’s Christmas Lights coming up this Thursday we thought we would celebrate with complimentary mince pies for all those dedicated late night shoppers that visit us for a hot drink to warm the christmas cockles.
We’ll also be offering tasters of Colston Bassett Stilton and had have toasted chestnuts on if you fancy a nibble!
All of this, as well as our Tapas menu on offer from 17:30 should ensure a very tasty kick off to Falmouth’s late night shopping!
Tickets are £10.00 with all proceeds going to ShelterBox and you’ll each go away with a bag of coffee too!
What?: Cupping evening. Taste our latests Seasonal Collection coffees from Brazil and Rwanda before they hit the shelves.

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:
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).

An evening of entertainment and festive food.
Tickets £20 in advance only, including a seasonal three – course meal and a complimentary toasting shot of Cornish Mead.
The Arts Café is pleased to announce our collaboration with Caravanserai’s own Mac Dunlop, who will be hosting an evening of entertainment by some of the region’s rising talent. Mac will preside over the event with with his engaging and distinctive storytelling. He will be joined by poets Rob Barratt and Nick Jarvis as well as local musician and songwriter Seamas Carey, who we are delighted to welcome back to the deli after a rousing performance this summer.
Mac Dunlop, your host for the evening, is best known for his ‘Unspoken Words’ radio shows, which have been broadcast by Falmouth’s Source FM and London’s Resonance FM. In anticipation of the evening Nick Jarvis has predicted that Mac ‘will bring to the stage ‘a bit of this then a bit of that’ cheeseboard kind of fashion’ Rob Barratt is often known as the Bard of Bodmin and has been regaling audiences with his humorous and rhythmic tales of the everyday, including awkward train journeys and karaoke love stories.
Seamas Carey has been entertaining audiences across the county both with his band, The Busketeers, and as a solo artist. He has recently performed a series of sell out ‘Silent Movie’ night at The Poly and toured his one man musical ‘My Granny’s House’
Nick Jarvis is Falmouth’s own ‘Voice of the possible’ and will be performing some poetry that, in his own words, ‘might make you think that he’s really a private investigator following ‘The Case of Christmas’… or possibly not!’
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.

“Transporting & enchanting”
“A wonderful combination of poetry & music”
Bob Devereux’s performance on Wednesday the 20th caused quite a stir with our intimate audience. With the first of the Arts Cafe events taking place in our upstairs cafe the acoustics, setting and ambience were put to the test and thankfully came through.
Next week Paul Farmer will be in place to whisk us away and give us a laugh with his stories accompanied by his wife on the acoustic guitar in between.
The story telling will begin at 7:30 but please feel free to arrive early to get a good seat and maybe a bite to eat. Tickets are on sale now from the Deli.
On the 19th of March, green fingered volunteers, backed by the Falmouth Spring Festival will be clearing and landscaping the scrub land next to Bells Court. A team of dedicated Falmouthians will be starting early to clear and replant the area with plants donated by local gardens including Trebah.
The event, named Guerilla Gardening, aims to create and celebrate the open spaces in Falmouth; opening up areas for us and our visitors to escape to and enjoy.
The Courtyard Deli will keep the volunteers fed and watered with Cream Tea and are looking forward to the event creating a bit of a buzz in Bells Court!
