The Theatre Quarry History

After the purchase of the land on Carn Marth by the Trust it was decided to convert the lower quarry into an open air theatre. At first this was a very rough and ready affair. Despite this and a power failure half way through, the first production, by Cornwall Theatre Company ‘The Three Musketeers’, was a tremendous success and generated much needed funds for the group. Enthusiastic audiences of over four hundred brought cushions, blankets and most importantly, food and drink.

early works at the theatre


Since those early days the Theatre Quarry has seen productions and performances every year by many differing groups, these include Shiva, Kneehigh, Miracle, Hammered Steel, Carharrack & St Day Silver Band and Doreen Fiol’s influential Children’s Theatre, among many others. We now have purpose made terracing thanks to the efforts of local Stone mason Roger Eslick and the generous loan of an earth mover from the now defunct Kerrier Groundwork Trust, and electricity on site


The postcode of the theatre is TR16 5TA, (Grid Ref SW714 406) for those of you needing to find us on a map.
