The Acorn’s mission is to provide and enable life-enriching experiences for the community of Penzance and West Cornwall, through a diverse range of live performance arts that are exciting, inspiring and of high quality at affordable prices, whether as a participant or audience member.

The objectives of the charity include the promotion, improvement, advancement, education and encouragement of the performing arts in Penzance and West Cornwall. This is achieved by arranging and facilitating events within the venue to promote the arts within local communities and by offering the general public the opportunity to participate in events and classes.


The Acorn is West Cornwall’s favourite affordable theatre for live music and performing arts with a reputation for innovative programming. For nearly 50 years we have hosted a huge variety of acts, groups and projects within theatre, dance, music, comedy, children’s theatre, film, choirs, youth and community engagement. Our facilities and atmosphere attract performers from the regular national and international tour circuits to play in this corner of Cornwall. The Acorn also nurtures regional talent by supporting the development of new work, hosting community events and providing an affordable venue for educational arts activities
