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.

As a resident of Cornwall and a keen theatre goer The Hall For Cornwall is by far my favourite venue in town. I am lucky enough to see more than one production each year and as a customer feel very welcome every time I enter the building. The staff are always smiling and are very helpful, the theatre itself is... More

I visited here with my husband and some friends for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. We had a lovely evening. We watched Fascinating Aida and they were hilarious! The venue is good.

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.
