We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – We Miss you! But whilst we can’t be together and share the power of performance we need your help. We want you, our audience to use this time to remember, share and celebrate your marvellous moments in our auditorium, tell us your stories and memories of your favourite shows- and if you can find photos, programmes, tickets (if like us you are cleaning out draws and your attic!) then send us those too, so we can pop them in our new online collection. Hall For Cornwall Associate Artist, writer and performer Callum Mitchell has penned a new work as part of our ‘Revealing City Hall’ National Lottery Heritage Fund programme to help us get our thinking caps on.
‘Without You, There’s No Us’ features animation thanks to Mae Voogd & sound score thanks to Rick Williams, so get searching, your minds and your homes then drop us an email to [email protected] and share your merchandise, memorabilia and memories. Be part of our story, part of our collection and part of our future.
