The Minack Theatre is a unique open-air theatre located on the cliffs above Porthcurno Bay in Cornwall, England. It is renowned for its stunning natural setting and has become one of the most iconic and picturesque theaters in the world. They offer a range of activities for children and adults. Many of these take place at weekends, including our popular Play in a Day workshops. You can also book interactive tours, which enable you to explore the theatre in a different way.
The upper levels of the Minack have been landscaped and planted to form a remarkable sub-tropical garden, full of exotic species you’d expect to see in South Africa or Australia and that are rarely found outdoors in mainland Britain. The place stands as a testament to human creativity and determination, blending the arts with nature in a way that makes it a unique and unforgettable destination for both theatre enthusiasts and tourists alike.
