The iconic Minack Theatre is a unique, open-air venue, set on the side of a cliff. It was created by Rowena Cade who spent a lifetime designing and building the structures you see here today.
The Minack is both a working theatre and a tourist attraction. When there are no performances on, we are open for visits. However, visiting hours vary, so always check in advance. Advance booking is recommended for all visits and events to avoid disappointment.
