Minack Theatre

14-Minack Theatre

 "Minack" in Cornish means a rocky place and the black headed crag below the theatre has always drawn local fishermen. Until the 1930’s they had the gorse filled gully to themselves and the cliffs echoed to the cries of gulls not actors. It was Rowena Cade who started this wonderful theatre overlooking Porthcurno Bay and the English Channel.  We visited this amazing site whilst on our honeymoon in Cornwall in 1971.  It was an overcast day and a bit blustery but nothing spoilt our visit.  There is a long history attached to the Minack Theatre and you can read all about it on their website, http://www.minack.com/
