Having supported and enjoyed the theatre over many years what has not improved is the downstairs male toilet. It always smells strongly of urine. It maybe poor ventilation but your cleaning program is not working. They stink! PLEASE do something to address this.

Hall for cornwall is a great theatre, have been 3 times now and they always put on good shows. Staff are very friendly and helpful and not overpriced. You can sit outside and have drinks and watch the world go by, and if you are lucky see the stars of the show, Christina and Robin. We shall return next year.

Last date of this tour, so pleased we managed to get all the way here from the Midlands to see the man. The venue was easy to find and there was plenty of local parking. We ate a good restaurant before the show, and Truro does seem to have a good choice of unusual restaurants. The theatre itself was fairly... More

In the middle of Truro hard to find good lunch but this is just the best. Sitting outside the theatre on a deckchair with perfect food and a chilled glass of Processo. Has obviously become the place to meet inbetween shopping. They even have free wifi and wonderful coffee and icecream to finish. So unexpected at a theatre ...well done

A good excuse for me to visit Cornwall was to do a few days trading at the Hall for Cornwall Flea Market, in the granite foyer next to the Tourist Office. This has shrunk a little in recent years, and there are rumors of closing it down, which i do hope will not happen, since I've frequently been able to... More

We visit the theatre a couple of times a year. There is always someone to help if you have a problem. It always feels that you are part of the show and they provide excellent entertainment. Last night we went and watched Dead Simple. Great play. Well done Hall for Cornwall

Saw the Kings Speech cast was wonderful as was the play. Theatre staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble a much better experience than our visit to the B.I.C where the staff were surly and unhelpful and oblivious to my disability see my review of B.I.C for details.(and the total lack of a response thereto)...

Enjoyed The King's Speech here on June 3rd 2015. Show was amazing. What polished the night off were great staff in all areas of the theatre. From tickets to Ice Creams from Programme sellers to cloak room attendants not one grumpy person. All genuinely happy to be there and help. Good job HfC

The Hall for Cornwall is a vital aspect of the cultural life of the City of Truro and the County of Cornwall. We are so fortunate to have this venue for the performing arts. The Hall presents a wide range of productions to suit all tastes and is well supported. We have seen plays, heard concerts and viewed exhibitions. Recently... More

Our first time to HFC but it will not be our last, my wife and I went to a performance of Jeeves & Wooster a very good production well worth seeing. The HFC is a wonderful venue, excellent staff made the whole experience really enjoyable.
