Following a sold out Summer tour this re-imagined festive production will be performed entirely in the round and features a live acoustic soundtrack composed and played by local guitarist Scott Fleming. Families will have time to marvel at Mousehole's spectacular Christmas lights display before taking their seats to hear how this West Cornwall village was saved from desperate famine by the brave actions of fisherman, Tom Bawcock, and his faithful cat, Mowzer. Based on a well-known Cornish legend this heart warming story of the friendship between a fearless fisherman and his devoted cat is sure to warm the cockles of your heart almost as much as a 'efty portion of stargazy pie! The Mousehole Cat runs for three weeks from 17 December in the heart of Mousehole alongside the villages annual Christmas illuminations. This festive show lasts for approximately one hour allowing families to soak up the atmosphere of Cornwall's most famous Christmas light display and enjoy a live performance all in one evening.

What's on in Cornwall this month for art lovers. Kurt Jackson, one of Britain's leading contemporary artists has joined forces with National Maritime Museum Cornwall, developing a new collection of work called 'Line Caught and Local which will open to the public until 25th January 2015.The new exhibition features a stunning series of paintings, drawings, sculpture, supporting film footage and fishing artefacts, as well as a rare glimpse at Kurt's sketch books, offering an exhibition beyond the walls of the artwork and embracing the life and work of inshore fishermen in audio, film and handling objects.

The works have been created in situ and Kurt has been working, sailing and filming alongside Penwith fishermen who work out of the harbours and ports of West Cornwall. Using time honoured traditional methods, these men sail off in small boats catching crab, lobster, mackerel, bass, sardines and pollock, working with hand lines, nets and pots in acknowledgment of community based sustainable fishing methods. This is a wonderful art exhibition in Cornwall - one not to be missed!
