Welcome to the Minack Theatre

The Minack is a unique theatre perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic ocean. We put on a full programme of drama, musicals and opera every summer, together with music, comedy and story-telling.

We’re open all year round for you to come and explore this amazing place and discover the incredible story of Rowena Cade who created the theatre. We look forward to welcoming you.

To avoid disappointment please be sure to plan your visit by checking our opening times HERE.

It is only possible to visit the theatre during our scheduled opening times.
