Another talk on the town's future
A SERIES of workshops discussing the future of Penzance at the town's Exchange gallery continues tonight.
Under the banner A Postcard to Penzance, tonight's event looks at The Changing Shape of Towns.
Speakers Elizabeth Cox and Tobias Goevert will talk about their experiences of urban regeneration projects and research into the ways in which a particular community can shape the way their town will look in the future.
The speakers will be followed by an open debate and sharing of some of the Cornish experience and best local practice.
