The Minack Theatre

Another forgotten post. We booked tickets for The Minack to see a comedy and were very lucky with the weather.


Originally owned and built in the 1930's by Rowena Cade (and her gardener Billy Rawlings), The Minack Theatre is simply wonderful.





Fantastic views of Porthcurno Beach where Rowena Cade used many tons of sand to help build the concrete used for the seating.

Absolutely worth a visit if you're down that way
Until next time

    1. Thank you, I meant to post these ages ago-just been so busy with work. It really does have a great feeling and so unusual, seems like it's been there for hundreds of years.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I read them all. At the moment I'm struggling for time making it difficult to reply individually to each comment, but I'll do my best.
