The Polperro Arts Foundation was
founded by a group of talented local
artists in 2001
who were keen to continue the 50 year
tradition of promoting the arts in
Polperro, Cornwall.

Since the Foundation was formed it
has occupied the first floor of the
Foresters Hall overlooking Polperro’s
inner harbour. But a new opportunity
has opened for us at the Village Hall at
the top end of the village next to the
Crumplehorn Inn. After discussions
with the Polperro Community Council
(Parish Council) which owns the Hall
we have decided that the enforced
period of closure during this Spring
and Summer presents a rare
opportunity to undertake the
challenging process of relocation.

While we will miss the old gallery with
its attractive display space and fine
view over the harbour there is much to
look forward to in our new premises.
Originally built as the Polperro school,
there are plans to see the building
develop as a cultural hub for the
village, of which we hope to be a part.
We will have sole occupancy of the
‘Youth Room’ which is just a few steps
from the main pedestrian route into the
village, a similar size to Foresters Hall,
well lit, with good supporting services
and most importantly, with the potential
to take on the look and feel of a
genuinely professional gallery.

The Hard work is done!
The hard work of taking down our stuff
and moving it to the Village Hall is all
done but it will take a while to re-
arrange things and get properly set up.
We expect to be ready to re-open in
September provided that by then
lockdown rules are relaxed enough for
us to do so.
Later on we will let you know exactly
when we will re-open, and we look
forward to seeing you in the Village
Polperro Arts Foundation, Polperro Village Hall, Polperro, Cornwall. PL13 2RH.
