Visited the venue twice recently. When visiting a new venue I usually like to view a picture of the inside before deciding where I want to sit, but there are no pictures of the seating on-line. Although there are no obstructions (pillars etc) to block views, you are better off sticking to the centre block (apart from the two seats... More

Went to see woman in black Feb 2015. Play was not as good as expected but venue Hall for Cornwall was well presented, friendly with good tiered seating. Bookings was easy with ticket up at venue. Small bar area for interval drinks. Parking was easy in long term car park and much cheaper than Plymouth. Overall a good local venue.

Went to see 'The Woman In Black' - good job that I'm not reviewing the play (as I thought it was awful) The Hall For Cornwall is a decent venue, the seating is laid out well, as in you don't get the problem (as in many cinemas) where the person in front of you blocks your view. There is a... More

Went to the Hall for Cornwall two days running for music and then a play. Both were very enjoyable - great sound system and effects. The staff were helpful and friendly and it had one of the best run theatre bars that I've ever been to. However, it would be great if the ladies' loos had a bit of a... More

The Hall has it's own restaurant and coffee shop which is very good and reasonable. The staff are all helpful and friendly and the theatre comfortable. It... More

Visited last night to see Vampires Rock. A nice place, pleasant staff and fairly comfortable seats. A bit pricey to buy icecream etc but acceptable. Not much else you can say.

We came for the second year running to the panto on Christmas Eve (am). Such a lovely theatre, it's small but has a really nice atmosphere. The panto was brilliant (as it was the previous year), the kids loved it, especially the throwing of the 'rocks' at the baddies. Well done on another great production and we look forward to... More

Took Grandaughter to her first Panto, Robin Hood. Absolutelly brilliant.Not sure about parking so we parked in the Park and Ride, £2.60, well worth it. Made a day of it shopping in Truro first, then meal in the restaurant of the Hall for Cornwall,meal was reasonable but nothing special, then the Panto.Then home suitably exhausted ready for Santas' arrival.

Every time we go to Hall for Cornwall we agree that we shouldn't leave so long until the next time. The Moscow City Ballet production of Giselle was stunningly beautiful. As always the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful.
