Cornwall has a wonderful culture of outdoor theatre. This summer, companies are offering some wonderful open-air performances in spectacular locations. Here’s our round up of the best outdoor theatre Cornwall has to offer. 

Minack Theatre (various shows & dates) approx. travel time from Cosawes Barton 1 hour 10 minutes

Possibly the most dramatic theatre on earth, a visit to the Minack Theatre is an unforgettable experience. Hewn out of granite and overlooking the sea, this is one place where the view might just rival the action on stage.

There’s a wide variety of performances, including children’s shows during the day. Make the most out of your trip to by combining a visit to Minack with an afternoon on Porthcurno beach, a walk along the coast path or a visit to the award-winning Porthcurno Museum of Global Communications.
