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:
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?

Kicking off our Wednesday night Arts Cafe will be the well know Bob Devereux of St Ives. Performance poet, librettist, artist and all round entertainer Bob will be bringing his world of words to the Deli accompanied by Adrian O’Reilly on the acoustic guitar. Having checked Bob out at the St Ives Arts Hall this week I can assure you that it will be an evening well spent!
The 27th brings us Paul Farmer, a story teller that has worked with Radio 4, as well as more locally, The Kneehigh Theatre on numerous occasions. His story telling performances are well known and well received!
I’m afraid that’s all I’m telling you right now but bookmark our Courtyard Arts Cafe page and watch out for full listings before the weekend is out; as well as a very special gig on the 3rd
