The Hive at Pydar
Pydar will transform the creative economy of Truro. It will be home to ‘The Hive’, a digitally focused and entrepreneurial new innovative learning and living environment that will help create jobs in high-growth, high-value business that will benefit Cornwall’s wider economy.
The Hive, to be created by Autumn 2024, will be a hub for the screen and digital sectors focusing on film, television, games and animation but with an emphasis on entrepreneurship, providing a new model of ‘living, learning, working and playing’. It will be home to students, researchers and entrepreneurs from Falmouth University as well as local digital start-ups.
The Hive will support Truro to become a destination city with young people living, studying and working in the city centre creating a ‘Soho’ atmosphere. This will reinvigorate the entire Truro economy introducing a younger audience who will also support the night-time economy.
