Who we are

This is who we are.

Knowing why we’re here helps us do what we do better.  That’s what our vision and values are all about.

Why do we exist? 

We’re here for Cornwall’s audiences to discover all that the arts can be. From ‘I’ve never seen anything like it,’ to ‘I’ve had the time of my life,’ to ‘I feel a little bit braver now,’ we’ll always innovate, entertain, excite and connect, across our diverse music, theatre, community, dance and digital platforms.

What do we do?

As a social enterprise and charity, we're all in backers of creative brilliance.

We bring great shows to Cornwall. We make great work. We do it all independently. 

We bolster schools and communities with projects that let people feel the power of performance. We support artists and practitioners who are creating original work and offer footholds for the next generation of talent to get their unique perspective out to the wider world. We house creative businesses forging the industries future. And we’re constantly amazed by what our audiences, collaborators, participants and teams make possible.
