We present a wide range of live performance and we hope that there'll be plenty to tempt you in our season.  Seeing a show at the Minack is a memorable event for many visitors.  Our main season begins at Easter and runs until early October.  

We create some shows ourselves, using professional actors and the Minack Youth Theatre members to create spectacular productions.  Most performances here, however, are created by visiting companies and performers.  We include some Cornish companies in every season, but most come from throughout the British Isles and even further abroad.


In the spring we present a short season of music gigs featuring national and international performers, and you'll find other musical events throughout the year, including our popular Minack Proms and our wonderful daytime Christmas concert in December.  

Plays, Musicals and Opera 

We present a variety of drama, from Shakespeare and the classics to contemporary plays.  Our season always includes a number of popular musicals and there is at least one major opera production each year. 

Family Entertainment

During the school holiday periods you will find plenty of family friendly entertainment both among our evening shows and in our daytime performances for children.

Special Events

We like to try new things at the Minack.  In recent years we've hosted ballet, film, stand up comedy and even an aerial circus performance among other very special performances.
