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...

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

Visited Hall for Cornwall to see Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - fantastic concert that was almost spoiled by the lack of leg room for our seats. We were quite late booking and had the choice of front few rows or balcony. Went for balcony in order to view the whole orchestra. Booked row O seats 40 & 41. The leg room... More

This is a great theatre, just the right size for shows without being too big. All the staff are helpful. My only criticism is the range of drinks available in the bar which seems to have changed recently. My wife requested a Martini or Cinzano Bianco, after checking we were told they no longer stocked it, she then requested a... More

Good size so that even though we were in the very back row due to late booking, we had an excellent view and no vertigo. The staff were efficient and pleasant. The icecreams at the interval were excellent.
