Are you looking for a space in Truro to run community activities, events and workshops? Check out the Pydar Pop UP venue in the former Hardy Carpets shop in St Clement Street on the edge of the Pydar regeneration area.

Opened in November 2019, the Pop UP offers 3 spaces, all of which are available for ad-hoc use. There is a large warehouse space that can accommodate over 200 people. A shopfront, suitable for exhibitions etc and a large first floor meeting room that can hold about 40 people. There is disabled access to the main parts of the building.

The stairs leading up to the warehouse space

There is also a basic kitchenette for serving drinks and toilet facilities. The generous space means the Pop UP can host all sorts of activities from the Truro City of Lights workshops through to roller disco and much more… come and have a look round and see what you think!

The kitchenette and bar

We hope the space will:

  • Enable a wide range of community activities to be hosted in central Truro
  • Test the potential for a future community led venue within the future Pydar neighbourhood
  • Provide a new type of venue that is both accessible and affordable to community, amateur, professional and commercial organisations and businesses

A small management committee has been formed to help organise and manage ideas for the Pop UP. The space will operate throughout 2020 until the plans for the new neighbourhood are developed in detail.

The shopfront area

The committee will also look at options for longer term access to accessible, affordable and inclusive community space for events and activities in central Truro. This will include a review of existing community assets within the city.

To discuss your ideas for activities at the venue or to make a booking please email Truro BID or call on 01872 273 999.


The Pop UP venue is located at the former Hardy’s Carpets shop and warehouse at 8 St Clements Street. The building is on the border of the 4 hectare Pydar regeneration area and opposite the Truro Highcross car park.
