Based at the St Austell Bay Retail and Leisure Park, Cornucopia will be an all-year-round visitor attraction that is a total celebration of all things relating to Cornish food and drink. Taken from the Latin for ‘horn of plenty’ the name Cornucopia has historically been used as a symbol of abundance and nourishment and this is the perfect analogy for the county’s produce. There will be interactive exhibits that offer insight into Cornwall’s proud food and drink heritage, including the UK’s very first showcase for the region’s famous pasty. The public will be able to visit the new attraction and browse the exhibits, make retail purchases and enjoy an on-site food and drinks service from some nineteen units of varying sizes – all arranged around a central communal seating area with tables.
Another unique aspect of Cornucopia will be the concept of tasting tickets. Whilst the attraction is free to enter, it is planned that visiting ‘foodies’ will be able to buy three different tickets that enable them to sample the delicious produce on offer before ordering a meal or making a retail purchase. The tasting ticket options include either a selection of sample-sized drinks, food or a combination of both for the very best experience. This approach was successfully introduced at London’s Vinopolis wine tasting attraction and its former chief executive Malcolm Ball is at the helm of Cornucopia.
Cornucopia is located on the outskirts of St Austell Bay's Retail and Leisure Park, a popular, out-of-town site that is being totally transformed, with extensive developments that not only include Cornucopia, but Sam’s Diner, a growing Kidzworld play attraction, a soon-to-be-announced highprofile leisure retailer taking over the adjacent 8,000 sq ft A1 retail unit and a very-much resurgent Cornish Market World. The site is accessed from Par Moor Road, which is just off the A390, linking with Par Beach and beyond that, Fowey approximately four miles to the East. St Austell is centrally located within Cornwall and is positioned on the A390, benefiting from visitors travelling through the county, as well as serving those holidaying on the south coast around Carlyon Bay, Fowey, Mevagissey and Polperro areas. The town itself has a population of approximately 19,630 (2011 Census) and a wider area population of 34,700.
The site currently attracts around 15,000 visitors every weekend.
