Cornish Clubs - A List of Geeky Groups, Games and Hobby Clubs in Cornwall

It’s the sharing that makes geekdom awesome… or so says John Scalzi (read more about that in our what it means to be a geek blog), either way, we think you get way more out of a hobby when you’re sharing your passion with others, and it's a great way to socialise or learn something new too.

So here’s a list of some local clubs and groups you might want to check out near us in the Cornwall area. There’s actually a fair bit going on in between the open fields and windy beaches… if you know where to look!

It’s by no means a definitive list - so if you know of one that's near us that you think might be worth adding, let us know - whether it's tabletop gaming or crochet, as long as you’re into it, it’s geeky!

If the list evolves, we might sort stuff into groups, but for now…in no particular order...

    Have a group?

    If you have a local group that you think should be added here, let us know!  If you’re from one of the groups on this list and have any other info to share - or a photo of your club to jazz up this page - feel free to send that over too.

    It doesn’t have to be gaming necessarily - anything a group of geeks might gather to enjoy together - whether that’s chess, or gardening!

    If you didn't know, we’re opening a café next door, which we hope will be a space for groups and clubs to convene upon an evening too. If that sounds of interest, fill in our form for updates.

    You can find us on Facebook and Instagram @HappyPiranha, or email us at too!
