We had such a brilliant evening watching Bugsy Malone. The children were brilliant, the costume divine and the high tech stage props were astounding. I would recommend family and friends to see a show here whilst they’re visiting Cornwall. Amazing work!

I think Mary Poppins would be the best one, and maybe get a seat on the end of a row if you need to have a walk around outside if your little one needs a brief leg stretch! I’d say the stalls for that reason. Enjoy!
