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.

This is as good as you can get in this country for all kinds of performances; I love watching dance here but have also seen excellent drama and music here too. It doesn`t matter where you sit for you can always see and hear everything and the Hall for Cornwall attracts a good range of acts from not only England... More

Although we were not visiting for a show my friend advised that the restaurant at the front of the theatre served lovely food and was not to be missed. Although we only had a sandwich and a coffee it was delicious. The cakes and snacks all looked very appealing but unfortunately on this occasion we couldn't manage one but I... More

We have been to HFC many times, but we certainly had a good laugh on Saturday 6th August 2016, as it was Jethro. It was a truly fabulous atmosphere and soooo very funny. He also mingled with the crowd outside during the interval. Have seen the Illegal Eagles, Rumours,Killer Queen, Rod Stewart Story and many more. Looking forward to the... More

We actually just went in for lunch at this theatre in Truro and it's a lite bites cafe and serves superb food. Delicious cheese + ham omelette with a mouth watering salad reasonably priced as well

This is a delightful provincial theatre that is at its best when it deals with small acts since there is such an intimate connection with the audience. I actually enjoy opera, ballet and classical music, all of which require a substantial stage area which this doesn't have. However, for musical groups it works well although the acoustics leave a lot... More

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.
