We have seen a few shows and plays here Seating is quite steep especially at the back where you get the feeling if falling forwards! Staff are friendly, the views of the stage are good and uninterrupted. There is a walkway between rows D and E which means good views but also occasional people going in and out. Sound and... More

This performance hall is situated in such a scenic pedestrian promenade (i.e., Back Quay/Lemon Quay) in Truro with some colorful restaurants along the way. Inside, we found the hall to be spacious and thankfully not stuffy or pretentious. We went on a night when the BBC Radio Orchestra was performing. Even though we arrived at the last minute we had...

A wonderful evening, marred however by a very rude member of staff, an older lady with brown hair and glasses, working behind the bar. The lady, who was working behind the bar in the area where I was stood, was very busy. Having had numerous bar jobs in the past, I understood how stressful this can be and continued to... More

While the tiered seating is quite steep it does afford excellent, unobstructed views of the stage. Went to a packed house so the atmosphere was great and it's very convenient for nearby car parks.

We travel from the midlands to see one particular act here, this was the second time doing so. The theatre is well staffed, has a pretty good bar, and is about the right size for a reasonably intimate show. The seats are getting old and uncomfortable now, but apart from that the experience is good. Very pleasant and helpful staff... More

We always travel to here to watch visiting artistes as the atmosphere is excellent. The exterior has been kept perfectly preserved and inside the small theatre is well laid out. There is a bar and coffee shop which are both reasonably priced. All the staff are very welcoming and remain totally professional, even during a fire alarm and evacuation which... More

Excellent show thoroughly enjoyed performance apart from one thing. ..the seating so uncomfortable and took away from the show as kept checking watch to see how much longer had to suffer sitting in such uncomfortable seating. Thought it was just me but friends said same. Shame as such lovely shows but spoils it.

I often visit the HFC to see their great shows. Have never been disappointed, and always find the overall service is excellent. They are currently looking to develop the theatre with the help of lottery money. This will really make this a not to miss venue.

I was given two tickets for my 70th birthday to see the recent Sount of Music performance. What a treat. Wonderful from start to finish.
