The Minack Theatre is currently closed

In this fast-moving situation, we are only able to plan with confidence a few weeks ahead. We will remain closed as long as we need to and will regularly monitor and update our decision in light of government and Public Health England advice.

We feel very much not only for our own staff and visitors but for all the performers and companies who were looking forward to bringing their shows here to entertain you. Almost all of our 2020 programmed shows will now appear in 2021.

Is the site open to look around?

Sorry, but no, the whole site is closed including the car park and all facilities.

When we reopen, hopefully from July 4th, entry will be by advance booking of a specific time slot only.

I have tickets for a show that has been postponed? What should I do?

Anyone who had tickets for 2020 performances has now been contacted by our Box Office team.

Refunds should arrive in bank accounts within a few days of being processed by the team. 

I have tickets for a show later this year? When will I know whether it will go ahead?

In these rapidly changing conditions we are only able to make decisions a few weeks ahead. If we need to cancel or postpone future performances, we will post this on our website and social media and contact everyone who has bought tickets for the event.

Are there any plans to reschedule shows that have been cancelled?

We hate losing shows and hope to reschedule as many of our performances as possible when it becomes practical to do so. As soon as we are able to give you good news about our future plans, rest assured we will!

Almost all of the shows that should have appeared in the 2020 season will now appear in 2021.

Can I transfer my tickets if a new date is scheduled?

Most 2020 events have been postponed to similar dates in 2021, but we are unable to put tickets for those events on sale at this time.

Will your office be open if I need to speak to someone?

A member of our team will be answering the phone between 10am and 2pm on weekdays, but it will be helpful if you can ask questions via email.

Keep in Touch

In the difficult times ahead, we will really miss meeting old friends and welcoming new ones to our theatre.

We may be closed, but we’ll still be here on social media. We’ve got some creative plans in the pipeline to help you get a little Minack fix when you want it. So do keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or sign up to our newsletter. And don’t forget our webcam will still be running, so pop in and see us online.

Meanwhile, we send you and all your loved ones our thanks for your support and our wishes for your health and wellbeing through the difficult days ahead.
