Chimney Seagull Mousehole

The Minack Theatre

The only backdrop to the shows here is the stunning ocean and sky. Keep an eye out for dolphins playing in the waves below!

It might look like it was built by invading ancient Romans, but this unparalleled outdoor theatre was, in fact, hewn into the hillside by a very British character.

Rowena Cade built this unique venue in her back garden between 1931 and 1983 (with a little help from two friends).

Now running a full programme throughout the summer weeks (not weekends), the only backdrop to the shows here is the stunning ocean and sky. Keep an eye out for dolphins playing in the waves below!

The doors to the Minack open 90 minutes before performances. We love to pack up a hamper and the family and get there early on sunny days for the perfect picnic spot. Sharing a cheeky bottle of fizz is a real indulgence.

Local knowledge: Performances take place rain or shine. Pack your mac and your sun cream to beat the weather! A cushion is a good idea as the seats are hewn into the rocks…
