I've visited HFC quite a few times over the years and enjoyed some excellent shows here. Tonight was no exception - a full house for the legendary John Mayall, on the first date of his UK tour, who delivered a superb, high octane performance with his band (he's 80 years old this year but his performance put guys half his...

We visited Hall for Cornwall while on holiday to see Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat. The show was excellent and the view from our seats a good one. With being a fairly modern theatre there are no pillars to have your view obscured. It's a good venue to attract shows to this part of the south west, however it lacks... More

The Hall for Cornwall is a fantastic theatre in the heart of Truro. The variety of shows gives something for everyone and the layout of the theatre means that you can see the stage easily from wherever you choose to sit. The staff and theatre volunteers are always helpful and nothing is too much trouble. With good facilities for disabled... More

friendly service and good atmosphere, very clean and not dingy. I never dislike going there. I just wish more famous groups and acts would come down for a provincial grilling..

Well terraced hall, with easy views of the stage, good acoustics. Nice bar. All you need is a good show to see.

I have been to the HFC many times and never had a bad time. The shows are always enjoyable, the staff are helpful and friendly and in general the prices are reasonable. It's a good night out.

An interesting theatre with a large stage and an unusually wide auditorium. We were in row B - excellent vision and at a discounted price compared to those seats immediately behind. Rows AA, BB and A are on the flat and eye level is a little low. (We have previously been in the very back row - not ideal). There's... More

Took the kids (aged 5 and 8) to watch Joseph on a very wet day in Truro, it was the best musical I have seen outside of London and the kids really enjoyed it.

Nice venue for a concert (or maybe play/panto etc). Large enough to make the venue viable, but small enough to make it feel personal. Audio quality at the concert we attended at the end of June 2014 was clear and accurate. Seating was comfortable, staff worked well to ensure the whole evening was a success. Facilities for visitors are good... More
