The attitude of the staff was terrible. Rude and aggressive. My husband is disabled in a wheelchair, now for twenty years the disregard was shocking. Show some empathy for your seniors. We paid £45. for rubbish. Ballet boys. it was deafening.

A great night out of comedy, J Pies show well written and intelligent, made the audience not only laugh out loud but also think about the topics of his show.

Cornwall does not really get enough great bands to the area, I think, and was genuinely excited to see one of Scotland's finest acts - Belle & Sebastian were booked in… Made the trip and knew that I was going to enjoy seeing the band,...More

This fabulous venue is closing for around 20 months to be completely refurbished. You have until June to catch on of the fabulous productions and then a bit of a wait. I am guessing tickets will sell out quickly so don't hang around. You can...More

Was the very first performance at HFC! Loved it, and have enjoyed many other performances since. There is a great ground floor cafe and upstairs restaurant. Can highly recommend this venue!

Hi, went to see matinee of Saturday Night Fever on Wednesday. Very talented cast of singers/musicians/dancers, although at times female singers were uncomfortably loud. However what really spoiled it was the frequent usage of the F word and other American expletives which would not have been heard in 1976 and did not reflect the era. As most of the audience was of a mature age the response was very poor. In fact it did not come alive until the finale which was great and more in line with what people had come to see and hear. I accept that maybe a younger audience would not have found the language so offensive as regrettably this is now everyday speech for some. Disappointing as other shows have been much more enjoyable without the vile language. hope this isn't t a taste of things to come .
