Minack Theatre

The Minack Theatre is unique being an open air theatre, carved out of the cliff at Porthcurno. It was built by the vision of one very determined lady Rowena Cade who was originally born In Derbyshire but moved to Cornwall via Cheltenham. After staging a Shakespeare play in her garden, she then staged one with the backdrop of the cliffs and the idea of creating a permanent theatre was born which took many years to become fully developed.

The theatre is open all year to daytime sight seeing visitors in addition to the summer season of Theatrical productions which are performed by a number of touring companies. Even in the summer, theatre goers are advised to wear warm clothes!

Further information is available from the links below and the Minack website also has a webcam.
