Another great evening

We have enjoyed another excellent evening at The Hall for Cornwall this time we saw Rehearsal for Murder, it was a very good production and was well received by the audience.

An inviting, flexible, intimate space often misused with poor unimaginative programming - i.e. an excess of tribute bands and second rate musicals. In a full season's programme, maybe two "events", on average, interest me and ensure I buy tickets. Such a pity. It could be a beacon in Cornwall but it offers a weak, middle-of-the-road, safe, rather lazy programme.

Not very well signposted in the town. We needed to use the sat nav. There is a car park nearby, the overnight charge is £1.30, much cheaper than paying hourly rate if you park after 6pm. I was late booking seats & was expecting to have to strain too see the stage but was pleasantly surprised. My poor husband wasn't... More

Good seats throughout the theatre as there are no blind spots. Good acoustics and an amazing selection of shows available. Always worth checking out what is on.

This was our first visit to the Hall for Cornwall. I managed to get last minute tickets after being unlucky when they sold out so quick in the beginning. Our seats were allocated row P which is quite far back. As we have never been here before I worried that we wouldn't be able to see or hear very well.... More

Went to watch the Elements show. Staff were friendly. Showed me where to go. Helpful. The show was very good. The musicians on stage done a lovely job and were also child friendly and supporting them by clapping and smiling. Well done. Happy customer.

Plenty of entrants to auditorium so no one area feels claustrophobic. Toilets available along with a bar which is suitable for half way through shows.

I love this venue and they generally offer a wide variety of different productions. I have visited the hall for Cornwall on many occasions to see all sorts of shows, all much enjoyed, but today I took my grandson to see the Dinosaur Zoo. Frankly I found it a bit boring. I expected there to be a story running through... More
