Known to locals as ‘the best-kept secret in Redruth’, the Melting Pot Café provides a valuable space for the local community, artists and performers across a variety of genres and styles.
With free WiFi available to visitors, a relaxed and bohemian atmosphere and a wide selection of cakes, sandwiches, salads, soups and hot drinks, this quirky venue is a much-loved cultural hub for the arts and features a stage in the cafe area for intimate performances and shows.
Set within the iconic Krowji Arts Centre building, many high-profile names have appeared on this one-off stage. Flats and Sharps, an established five-piece band with a passion for bluegrass music, have performed at this unique venue, as well as The Grenaways, a local band whose music celebrates Cornwall’s diverse celtic heritage. The Little Unsaid, winner of the Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award, with a strong folk and electronica repertoire, has also appeared on this stage.
Local theatre companies also feature on the venue’s programming. Ellsie Productions has previously presented the premiere of ‘Olive’s Odyssey – a Greek Myth-tery’, a comedy show which follows the story of Olive hunting for her hero, as well as the hit show ‘St Hilda’s Hospital Massacre’, a murder-mystery dinner party.
Visitors to this characterful venue can park for free and enjoy browsing the thought-provoking artwork, sculptures and decorative art on display throughout the cafe which provides an inspiring cultural backdrop for compelling and entertaining performances.
