We’re very proud of the variety and quality that Cornwall theatre shows have to offer. There is a vibrant arts and culture scene on our doorstep – and we’re lucky enough to get out there and enjoy it. From the award-winning cinema in Truro to the breathtaking Minnack or via a wealth of foodie events that spread across the length and breadth, Cornwall has a lot to do, whether you live here, or visit here.
We really enjoy our trips out to various Cornwall theatre shows – and not just at the big venues. Throughout the county amateur and small company groups thrive. Throughout the year we watch all kinds of shows in all kinds of places and the quality of performance and production are often exceptional.

Using incredible puppetry as well as a talented team of actors, the drama tells the story of how the West Cornwall village of Mousehole is saved from desperate famine by the brave actions of fisherman Tom Bawcock…and his faithful cat, Mowzer.
Expect battles with the fearsome Great Storm Cat, seven sorts of fish and lashings of Star Gazey Pie!
This is one fisherman’s yarn you won’t want to miss my ‘andsomes!
Trevithick! Starring Kernow King

“Trevithick!” is a biographical comedy that will light a fire in your bellies, bring joy to your heart and set your brain whirring like a four way valve on a steam engine. This is the true story of a man who was as much an artist and magician as he was an engineer.
