The Minack Theatre’s spectacular open-air setting, cut into the cliffside at Porthcurno near Penzance, is something of a shock. It feels like you have stumbled across an ancient Roman amphitheatre rather than a thoroughly British-made endeavour. The theatre, planned and built by the formidable Rowena Cade in 1931, is startling impressive, its seating created from a series of steep stone terraces, its stage a small area behind which rages the mighty Atlantic. You can come and see a drama, a musical or an opera here (check the website for performances) which is a truly magical experience (especially at night when the twinkling lights create a fairy tale atmosphere) or simply have a potter around, see the sub-tropical gardens and learn more about the remarkable Rowena Cade.
