Visual Presentations

Association for Cornish Heritage are able to give a variety of visual presentations about Newquay and Cornwall. These have been given to a range of groups such as 'Old Cornwall' societies, memory cafe's, Women's Institutes, U3A groups, schools and colleges.

If you are interested in having us provide your group with a talk contact us and we would be pleased to have a chat.

We also provide guided walks in the Newquay area and try to match these depending on the type and ability of the group.

All proceeds from these talks and walks go to support Newquay Heritage Archive & Museum a voluntary community museum in Newquay. This is run by Association for Cornish Heritage and our partner Newquay Old Cornwall Society.

Newquay Heritage Archive & Museum receive no funding from any local authority and need to raise funds to remain open and free to the public.
