The show was unusual but interesting none the less. I certainly became aware of my fire lighting options. The seating in the section we sat in was cramped and uncomfortable, but I understand that a big renovation is planned. HoC is a jewel in Truro...More

I don't mean a load of tramps on benches. I mean a packed house and very comfortable at that. We're both well endowed with ample bottomage and usually find theatre seats a bit, well . . . over-caressing . . . circulation stoppers . ....More

I've been going to the Hall for Cornwall for nearly 20 years, and I'm never disappointed. Ticket prices vary depending on performer, but are always reasonable compared to bigger city prices. The service at the ticket desks, on the door and at the bar are...More

Have been to many shows here and we have had a good experience every time, comfy seats with excellent views in all parts of theatre. Lovely facilities for snacks and very clean toilets. Nearby parking at reasonable rates is always a big plus.

Hi, went to see matinee of Saturday Night Fever on Wednesday. Very talented cast of singers/musicians/dancers, although at times female singers were uncomfortably loud. However what really spoiled it was the frequent usage of the F word and other American expletives which would not have been heard in 1976 and did not reflect the era. As most of the audience was of a mature age the response was very poor. In fact it did not come alive until the finale which was great and more in line with what people had come to see and hear. I accept that maybe a younger audience would not have found the language so offensive as regrettably this is now everyday speech for some. Disappointing as other shows have been much more enjoyable without the vile language. hope this isn't t a taste of things to come .
