On Thursday 21 May 2015, Cockington Court celebrated the opening of the new Visitor Welcome Point and The Gallery.

At an event hosted by TDA, local hospitality and tourism businesses and other invited guests experienced the new facilities and met Cockington Court’s studio crafts makers and chocolatiers, while networking and enjoying drinks and canapés.

Among the invited guests was the Hungarian Ambassador to the UK, Peter Szabadhegy.

Torbay’s Mayor, Gordon Oliver, said: “It was great to see so many people coming together to share the magnificence of Cockington Court. It is fascinating to see the crafts makers at work in their studio. It really is an experience to be seen.

“The Hungarian Ambassador and his party were hugely impressed with how warm and welcoming the Court is, along with the natural beauty of the area, its regeneration and the development of the Craft Studios.”

The evening of celebration showcased what Cockington Court has to offer for the Bay’s residents and visitors, reinforcing Cockington as a must see destination, with year round events, workshops and activities for all the family.

Marissa Wakefield, Centre Director Cockington Court, said: “Cockington’s Court, Country Park and Cockington village are one of Torbay's favourite destinations and we were proud to take this opportunity to welcome and show all our guests the exciting new developments at Cockington Court.

“Cockington Court enjoys a growing reputation as a regional centre for quality arts and crafts. The newly renovated Visitor Welcome Point and stunning new retail Gallery are certainly getting the Court and Cockington recognised as a whole-experience and cultural destination.”
