Visit us by day and explore this unique open-air theatre created from the cliffside at Porthcurno by Rowena Cade. Enjoy the spectacular views over Porthcurno bay to the Logan Rock.
The Rowena Cade Exhibition tells the remarkable story of how a girl who enjoyed the gentility of Victorian Cheltenham grew up to build this internationally famous theatre with her own hands. It shows how a local village play in 1929 led to the summer season now staged in the Minack’s 750 seat auditorium. Enjoy the wealth of photographs, models and audio-visual displays.
Explore the theatre, be surprised by our sub tropical plants, relax in our coffee shop overlooking the treatre and soak up the magic of the Minack.

Our comprehensive web site at www.minack.com gives full details of the summer programme, on-line booking during the season and everything else you need to know about the Minack.
