The cold neutron time-of-flight spectrometer PELICAN has been in user operation since October 2014. Pelican is well suited to the study of low energy excitations and offers a diverse range of user experiments ranging from condensed matter physics to cell biology. PELICAN also includes the option of XYZ polarisation analysis using a supermirror polariser and a wide angle 3He cell. In this contribution we will give an overview of the technical details of the instrument, along with examples of experiments using recently commissioned instrument configurations and sample environment that have been brought into service. This includes high temperature scattering up to 1600 oC, in-situ gas and vapour delivery, single crystal spectroscopy and utilisation of harmonic wavelengths.
