The Acorn

Where live performance takes centre stage

Welcome to

The Acorn Theatre

Your local theatre in the heart of Penzance, showcasing a vast and innovative programme of live music, comedy, theatre and performing arts.

The Acorn is a well-loved hub for the creative arts in the centre of Penzance and has long played an important part in our communities in West Penwith.

We prioritise high-quality performances along with creative engagement within the local community through workshops and clubs. Our programme cuts across all genres, including live music nights, international tours, book launches, work by local talent and comedy nights. Our two theatre spaces allow us to host both intimate performances and packed standing gigs. We showcase and invest in emerging, local talent through our Get Involved programme and by providing a platform and environment for new events to thrive.
