Transforming Hall For Cornwall
On 2 June 2018, Hall For Cornwall closed for an ambitious and much-needed redevelopment of our theatre, seeking to safeguard the heritage of the building and transform the venue into a dynamic and high-quality environment that will give the people of Cornwall access to the very best performing arts to rival any city in the country.
We may be far from the centre of political power, without the clout of a core city, but we dream big, After six years of passion, grit and gusto, we have raised £18million which has been sufficient funding to allow us to move forward with the project and make a start on the constuction phase,
Upon the foundations of our existing site, we're building a new large-sale theatre to reopen in 2020. We will unveil the history and heritage of our Grade II* listed building and create a new three tiered auditorium within, alongside improved café, bar & public spaces. Our new home will be a vital community asset and one which will continue to inspire, engage, educate entertain and challenge all audiences, firmly placing us at the heart of Truro’s cultural and economic offering and securing our long-term future.
Over the last two decades, our venue has played an important part in raising the standards and expectations of performance in Cornwall and, having worked closely with many partners and members of the public to develop our ambitious rebuild plans, we are confident that we can deliver a world class venue that Cornwall deserves and that the community will be proud of in the years to come.
We look forward to welcoming you on our journey.
