Minacktheatre

MinackTheatre

The Minack Theatre is Cornwall's world famous open-air theatre.

The Summer season of theatre runs from May to September presenting drama, musicals and opera in this most dramatic of settings.

Minack in Cornish means a rocky place and the black headed crag below the theatre has always drawn local fishermen. Until the 1930’s they had the gorse filled gully to themselves and the cliffs echoed to the cries of gulls not actors.

From 1931 until she died in 1983 the Minack Theatre was planned, built and financed by one determined woman - Rowena Cade.

Kneehigh theatre

Kneehigh Theatre

www.kneehigh.co.uk

“From our home in Cornwall, Kneehigh have built a reputation for creating vigorous and popular theatre for audiences throughout the UK and beyond. In Cornwall, 1980, a village school teacher began to run theatre workshops in his spare time. In due course a mixture of people became involved, a farmer, the sign writer from Tesco, several students, a thrash guitarist from a local band, an electrician. No actors...nobody who had been trained. The workshops took place in the spirit of cheerful anarchy and casually slipped into performance, and finally the production of shows.”
