We visit HfC quite often. It is a great, old fashioned venue. It provides audiences with a very wide variety of shows, something for all ages and all tastes. The staff are brilliant, helpful, friendly and attentive. My only gripe is that it is expensive for many pockets, although I understand the costs faced by such venues so I understand... More

Been to many performances here and enjoyed every one. Very good choice of programmes. Have been to dance shows, theatrical, musical and vocal and the standard of performance is very good. Excellent seats on all levels with very few restricted viewing seats. Only issue I have is steps on upper levels are quite dangerous for an older clientele as the... More

Went to see Fishermans friends from Port Issac, great show, kept us entertained for the whole show. A few people were taking pictures with the flash on. In some shows at the start they will say you are not allowed to take pictures. It is very distracting for the audiance and for the people on stage. Parking in the multi... More

We have been to the HFC many times. This time it was to see Seth Lakeman. He was brilliant as ever, however the sound quality was too loud and distorted at times. This seems to be a problem at the HFC when the volume goes up. The acoustics for this auditorium need to be sorted and maybe when when they... More

I was here with a friend last night to watch the Adele tribute act. We were seated in the stalls and had a good view of the stage. The act itself was brilliant, very clear music without being too loud. The seats were reasonably comfortable but I struggled with legroom and I'm 5"9. The only other negative is that there... More

Saw threee tribute bands - Beach Boys Story, Warerloo and Rumours of Fleetwood Mac - in January and all were brilliant and really entertaining. Rumours had a fabulous sound and I can't wait to see them again. I also saw American folk singer Tom Paxton, who I had seen in Truro 45 years ago. What a great night!

Michael Jackson experience was a show of two sides. Excellent portrayal of the named star with an excellent backing group albeit with some recorded 'back tracks'! The only let down was the group of dancers. One excellent, two good and one who seemed totally out of place. Such a shame that they could not find four excellent dancers.

It is always a pleasure to take my son, who is a wheelchair user, to this theatre. There is never any fuss, just easy access with good allocated seats. The booking desk staff are always helpful and good at suggesting future shows. We saw several tribute bands last year and thoroughly enjoyed the traditional pantomime. We are due to see... More
