Penlee Park open air theatre is just a stone’s throw from our apartments here at Bosuns Holiday Accommodation in Penzance. The theatre’s season runs from June – September, with a plethora of professional and amateur theatre, opera, comedy and music from both national and local touring companies. Sit back and enjoy a show in the ambient and intimate setting of Penlee Park. The venue is on the site of the former tennis courts belonging to Penlee House, which owes its beginning to the 1948 Cornwall Shakespeare Festival put on by Penzance Town Council. There’s a real mix of productions planned for the summer season, so do check out the website for upcoming events and dates.
