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... read 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.

Went to see the Woman in Black, which was superb. Also saw the Pantomime, which wasn't really as well suited for us, which we kind of knew! HFC is a well-kept, pleasant and nicely laid out venue. Very enjoyable, moderately priced and well worth it!

We decided to visit the choir competition held in the Hall for Cornwall and were given quite different prices. Firstly, we were informed that the cost for friends of a choir was £6.50 - this included ( in the small print on the ticket which of course we didn't see until we had handed over the money) £1.00 for the...

Thank you for letting us know about your trip to HFC. I've passed on your message to the external organisers of this event - so hopefully ticket prices should be clarified in the future. Front of house staff have also been notified of your message - We are very sorry to hear you had a bad experience at HFC. More

The venue is fantastic, I don't feel it was used to its optimum but on occasion when the lighting guy let go it was fantastic however ! Service out of five stars I would just about give it a single star, food and beverage service felt like I was doing them a favour in being there! Service With A Smile... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Having spoken to members of Box Office, it seems that this show hired out HFC as a venue, but we have certainly pointed out the problem with ticket prices to the organisers. We're very sorry to hear that your trip to HFC didn't meet your expectations. More
