Minack Theatre

Friday evening saw us at the Minack Theatre on the cliffs of Porthcurno. We were waiting to see a performance of 'Larkrise', a play based on the books 'Larkrise to Candleford' by Flora Thompson. After a wet and misty week the weather relented and gave us a warm dry evening. The performance was a sellout.
The gardens round the arena are pretty impressive, too. People took warm clothes, blankets and most people took picnics....wine and champagne were quaffed and it was all very civilised! We had eaten fish and chips at home so were full, but the lady sitting next to me opened a tin and took out a large Victoria sponge cake! We got offered a slice, too!
And as the moon rose over the sea....wow! What an amazing venue! I didn't take photos during the performance, was too absorbed. This was taken during the interval.

A magical evening, all for the princely sum of £9.50. We will go again.

Hi Sue

It sounds like you had a magical evening. I visited the theatre a few years ago on a very wet and windy day, it was wonderful despite the gloom, I long to go and see something like Macbeth there... one day...
