Our priority is to ensure the wellbeing of all our staff and visitors.  Some parts of our service have been altered to help you feel safe and comfortable.  You may find you are queueing longer than usual and we ask you to be patient and to help our staff and other visitors by respecting social distancing and washing your hands regularly. 

  • If you are booked to come as a multi-household group larger than 6 then we will ask you to move around the Minack in household bubbles
  • If you have booked for a performance then it would be helpful for the group to arrive together and we will then sit your households adjacent to each other (with social distancing between you)

We recommend the wearing of face coverings when moving around the theatre, using our toilet facilities and on entering and leaving the premises.

How your visit may be different this year

When you arrive, you will be met in the car park by one of our staff who will check your admission ticket and direct you to a parking space.  If you have not purchased an admission ticket in advance, you are not guaranteed admission to the car park.  Please note that the tarmac carpark is only available for disabled badge holders.  All other visitors will be asked to park on the grass car park. 

New entrance 

The main entrance to the theatre is in the south west corner of the tarmac car park.  You may have to queue for admission to the theatre. Social distancing signage and designated queueing routes are in place.  You will need to show your admission ticket at the entrance to the theatre.  

Visitors needing step-free access should make this clear when booking tickets and they will be directed to this entrance on arrival. 

In the theatre 

You are requested to respect social distancing within the theatre and you may find that some paths are designated ‘one way’ to enable people to move safely around the space.   

Food and drink 

Hot and cold drinks, ice creams, homemade cakes, cream teas, pasties and light snacks are available as takeaway items from the Terrace inside the theatre.  Our indoor café is closed.   


The toilets inside the theatre are available to our visitors but our public toilet in the car park is closed. 

Gift shop 

Our indoor gift shop is not open, but we are selling a limited range of items at the entrance to the theatre.  You will not be able to handle the goods, other than plants, before purchase, but our friendly staff will help you to make your choices. 

Making payments 

We ask all visitors to respect our cashless and paperless system.  

We are meeting the Industry Standard for following government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, having a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing
