Falcon Hotel in Bude
The Minack Theatre, Porthcurno

"Minack" in Cornwall means a rocky place and the black headed crag below the theatre has always drawn local fishermen. Until the 1930’s they had the gorse filled gully to themselves and the cliffs echoed to the cries of gulls not actors. From 1931 until she died in 1983 the Minack Theatre was planned, built and financed by one determined woman - Rowena Cade. From humble origins a local village play in 1929 led to the seventeen week summer season now staged in the Minack theatre whaich had a 750 seat fully equipped auditorium in one of the most spectacular settings in the World.The productions at the Minack Theatre are staged in the open air from early May to late September.
