Falmouth History // The Enys Family of Penryn

You may have enjoyed the famous bluebell display at Enys but did you know that the family who lived there were once among the most important families in Cornwall? Come and discover their fascinating story with local historian Terry Chapman.

From their influence on the local community in Mylor from the 13th century, through their travels abroad, involvement in international trade and the Mining Industry in the 18th and 19th centuries to the present day, this talk will give you a real insight into the family as well as Cornish history.

£6/£5 concessions (including Poly fund £1)

We advise you to book in advance as places are limited.
Come early for a drink in the bar and to get the best seat!
