This performance of The Hotel Experience at Liskeard Public Hall sees local dancers, young and old, taking part in the show alongside the company’s four mesmerising performers. You’re invited to check in, peep behind the do not disturb signs and eavesdrop on characters as the hotel accommodates their hopes and dreams. Don’t miss it! Watch the trailer

David Mynne : Charles Dickens : A Christmas Carol

The build up to Christmas wouldn’t be the same without David Mynne’s mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol. Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Bah!

Above Bounds : The Elves and the Shoemaker

Unfortunately the show at Devoran Village Hall later this month has already sold out but for those of you who didn’t manage to get tickets, Above Bounds will be returning to Cornwall in February with The Elves and The Shoemaker.
