Spent whole day seeing Noel Coward's nine one act plays entitled "Tonight at 8.30" presented by the English Touring Theatre Company under the direction of Blanche McIntyre. In between the three "Acts" (three cycles of three plays) we refreshed ourselves in the upstairs bar with elegantly presented light meals and drinks. The auditorium is comfortable with good accoustics and visibility... More

What a diverse cultural gem! It never fails to amaze me how the HfC manages to secure such a high quality varied programme of entertainment for our delight. Last week we were treated to an evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes on Tuesday followed on Wednesday by Clive John with the fantastic Johnny Cash Roadshow, which brought the whole hall to... More

My son and I visit regularly for children's theatre productions, see website for 'what's on' These are always well organised professional productions. Have seen a couple of music related things here too again enjoyable and organised well. Always think it's a shame that more current musicians and artists skip this end of the country. I do think that the H... More

The Hall For Cornwall is a lovely intimate theatre where world class performers create a magical world of entertainment. The atmosphere is wonderful and Cornwall would be so much poorer without it. Long may it flourish.

Go see this play! It is on from Monday to Saturday! Saw it in Cardiff and it's brilliant! It's the gritty true story of the vet James Herriot made famous by the TV series of this name. Despite the pig on the poster the only actual animal is a Westie! The other animals are there ok because of very clever... More

Over the years we have enjoyed a variety of performances from local productions, pantomimes and a variety of theatrical events, including lots of tribute bands. However, all of these have been totally eclipsed by the performances given by Vincente Simone and Flavia Cacace this week in Dance Til Dawn. We booked this last year after seeing their Midnight Tango show... More

Very true and excellent performance in the Hall for Cornwall. First time visit and very friendly atmosphere.Car parking available not far away and not over expensive. The hall was very clean and well organized by the staff. Great Team work. Thanks for a lovely day out with my friend.

Great venue, comfortable seats and a decent bar. Top-notch shows from London - why bother going all the way to the West End?
