Nice venue for locals or tourists

Quite a nice modernised theatre style hall, not too large, good acoustics, reasonable choice in bars. Look out for a production to see here when you are down in Cornwall.

The hall for Cornwall has some amazing shows on. It looks like more and more big productions are bringing their shows to Cornwall, where once upon a time the wouldn't venture further than Plymouth. The staff are friendly, the auditorium itself is lovely. It is due for a huge revamp and I can't wait to see what they will be... More

We enjoyed seeing Justin's Party with my little girl. The seats were good with good elevation between seats so it was easy to see the stage even for the little ones. Seats were comfortable and leg room was not too bad as theatres go. What let the experience down was the small amount of toilets for an attraction that caters... More

Ideal venue for any concert. Not too big so can see the stage & performers. We return regularly for mostly 60's & 70's music.

We visit HfC quite often. It is a great, old fashioned venue. It provides audiences with a very wide variety of shows, something for all ages and all tastes. The staff are brilliant, helpful, friendly and attentive. My only gripe is that it is expensive for many pockets, although I understand the costs faced by such venues so I understand... More

Been to many performances here and enjoyed every one. Very good choice of programmes. Have been to dance shows, theatrical, musical and vocal and the standard of performance is very good. Excellent seats on all levels with very few restricted viewing seats. Only issue I have is steps on upper levels are quite dangerous for an older clientele as the... More

Went to see Fishermans friends from Port Issac, great show, kept us entertained for the whole show. A few people were taking pictures with the flash on. In some shows at the start they will say you are not allowed to take pictures. It is very distracting for the audiance and for the people on stage. Parking in the multi... More

We have been to the HFC many times. This time it was to see Seth Lakeman. He was brilliant as ever, however the sound quality was too loud and distorted at times. This seems to be a problem at the HFC when the volume goes up. The acoustics for this auditorium need to be sorted and maybe when when they... More
