Open Air Minack Theatre at Porthcurno West Cornwall Coast

The Minack Open Air Theatre overlooking Porthcurno beach on the West Cornish coast. The panoramic views up here on the headland are some of the best in Cornwall! This open air theatre's setting is sublime, adjacent to one of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches - Porthcurno, and carved into the cliff face. The Minack Theatre is largely the work of one woman's perseverance to establish a community theatre. Learn all out Rowena Cade in the excellent Rowena Cade (1893-1983) exhibition within the theatre complex. Performances at the Minack Theatre began in the 1930s, and it's thriving still with regular performances of Shakespeare and other plays. Pre-booking is essential.
