CAST is open to the public for family workshops, and for evening talks, film screenings and special events. Find out more about the CAST programme on Events pages, which provide dates and times to visit.

CAST Café is open five days a week:
Tuesday – Saturday | 10am – 5pm


We are delighted to be able to welcome visitors back to the building and have made adjustments that we hope will help everyone to feel safe and comfortable.

There are toilets for hand washing and dispensers for hand sanitiser. In line with government guidelines, we ask you to start wearing a face covering on entering the building. This will be mandatory from August 8.

There is new a one-way system through the building. You can still enter through the main doors on Penrose Road, or from the Wendron Street car park, and then follow the arrows along the corridor to pick up CAST-Off information or to enter the black box screening space for the film programme. There is a choice of exits, taking you back to Penrose Road or to the car park. Please be aware that CAST studio artists are also moving around the building and may need to move against the flow.

The black box screening space can accommodate a maximum of two households or bubbles on separate benches; the benches have been positioned to ensure a minimum distance of two metres. The film programme will run continuously, starting on the hour, so if you find the space too busy please wait awhile and come back.

‘Track and Trace’ measures are being implemented. Please make a note of your arrival time and fill out a card before you leave the building.

The entrance and exit for the Café are now on the terrace to the side of the building.


The ground floor of the CAST building has wheelchair access and accessible toilet facilities. For visitors with limited mobility, CAST can usually make arrangements for parking at the front of the building, where there is wheelchair access.

Please email CAST if you have any questions or specific requirements for your visit: [email protected]

The rear entrance to the building can be reached by steps from Wendron Street car park and there are Cornwall Council car parks within a short walk.


CAST Lift Share aims to enable lift shares, especially for those who don’t have their own cars, so that they are able to come to evening events when public transport is limited.
