Are you searching for something fun to do with your little ones this summer and beyond?

There's something special about visiting the theatre with the whole family - and it's not just the sweet treats, magical merchandise, and the well stocked bar (for the adults!) It's a whole experience. The excitement of choosing a show, the counting down of the days until it arrives, the moment before the curtain rises to reveal a magical set...

Whether you're 3, 93, or anywhere in between, you're invited to dress up and join us for an adventure into a magical world where anything can happen. Our stage is a spellbinding place filled with special effects, music, and famous faces from the worlds of film, TV and even books.

So whether you're delighted by Dragons, fond of fairies, or you dig a dog called Duggee, there's something for everyone this year at Hall for Cornwall. Set in the heart of Truro, a stone's throw from Falmouth, Newquay and St Austell, we're the hub of entertainment in Cornwall.

Come and see what's happening in our theatre in 2023...
