Carn to Cove is Cornwall’s performing arts scheme for rural communities.  We fill our wonderfully varied community halls with poetry, laughter, music, drama, stories and dancing.  Local people choose the live shows they want to see and hear in their halls.  This means we have loads of variety for everyone across Cornwall. 

Carn to Cove works in close collaboration with Cornwall Young Promoters Scheme which enables young people to select and promote shows in their communities. Groups are springing up all over Cornwall!  If you would like to talk about programming work for young people in your venue or need help attracting younger audiences visit www.youngpromoters.org

The success of Carn to Cove is founded on the commitment and enthusiasm of the local promoters across the county. Tickets can be booked here or by calling your local hall on the phone number given on the events pages.

Please support your local volunteers who work so hard to make a great night out by making sure you are in the village hall on the night Carn to Cove comes to you!

If you are interested in joining our mailing list, our 200+ volunteers, or wish to enquire about including your community on the scheme, please contact us on 01209 312500.

Bec Applebee

The Ugly Sisters

Following the success of her solo show 'Oh Mary', Bec Applebee is creating a new theatrical venture 'The Ugly Sisters'; a fun filled family show based around the characters from the Cinderella story. Using a combination of original live music, dance and comedy the show takes a satirical look at media driven photo-shopped ideals of beauty and questions - who really is the Ugly Sister? How far will some girls go to get the attention of the prince and how much plastic and elastic can one girl use to get the perfect look? Is it possible to be happy as you are? And can our country girl in wellies win the day?

The show will be performed devised and written by a dazzling selection of Cornwall’s talent – Bec Applebee, Mary Woodvine (Kneehigh Theatre), Jenny Beare (Goldentree Productions), Callum Mitchell (Writer) and Seamas Carey (composer) from Silly Boys.

Too Cool: The Life and Music of Chet Baker

Sue Richardson

This show features trumpet player, Chet Baker’s beautiful music, recalling the smoky jazz clubs of 1950s West Coast cool. Chet’s romantic music belied a tragic, heroin-fuelled existence.   His intriguing story epitomises that of the classic jazz musician.

Labyrinth

Sonia Sabri Company

This is a South Asian dance collaboration between Sonia Sabri and Ash Mukherjee, Labyrinth was initially inspired by Woody Allen’s brilliant Death Knocks, a one-act play he wrote in 1968.

In addition to the duet, the evening also treats you to two solo pieces from each dance artist and an opportunity to meet the artists to discuss the performance after the show.

Jak Stringer

Walking with Wilkie

In the summer of 1850, Wilkie Collins, hoping to make his name as a writer, commenced a walking-for-pleasure tour of Cornwall, which resulted in his book Rambles Beyond Railways.

In 2013, Jak Stringer retraced his footsteps, with the aim of bringing stories from his forgotten book alive once more and creating a performance that intertwines the life of Collins with a snapshot of Victorian Cornwall.

Did the people of Looe eat their rats? Did the women of Saltash clean the boots of strangers for sixpence worth of liquor? What saved Logan Rock and why did Collins find a tavern full of babies on the Lizard?

This show combines contemporary live performance, original music and film to make an interesting, humorous and informative production.

Above Bored

'Owdyado Theatre

EvaBond Adhesive Supplies is in trouble. In its south-west office, Regional Manager Graham White has been found bludgeoned to death with his own name plaque.

How could this have happened? Mr White was a “stand-up guy”, the embodiment of Evabond’s corpoate ethos  - motivating employees with targets, in-house videos, team building days and always encouraging them to “think the unthinkable”.

As employees are questioned by the police, two Sales and Distribution Coordinators , Jean and Jenny emerge as the prime suspects. Under questioning, their protestations of job satisfaction and unwavering loyalty to Evabond begin to unstick, along with their ambitions, principles and even the reality of the interrogation room itself…

Inspired by Genet’s The Maids with influences from Harold Pinter and Martin Mcdonagh this original black comedy uncovers the despair at the heart of the corporate hamsterwheel  and imagines how far people will go to escape it.

Written by Charlotte Bister and Daniel Richards (Wrongdoings and Wake-Up Calls at the Stop-Off Motel) and directed by Simon Harvey (Kneehigh, o-region)

Diary of a Lost Girl

Wurlitza

Diary of a Lost Girl traces the story of Thymian, played by mesmerising screen idol Louise Brooks, as her life yoyos between episodes of lightness and innocence, darkness and despair. There are moments of great comedy in this gripping film, in which joy and compassion are found in the most unlikely places.

Wurlitza are a five-piece Cornish band with keyboards, guitars, clarinet, bass, percussion and vocal harmonies specialising in creating live soundtracks to silent films. By adding a mix of classical, blues and pop music they bridge the gap between the centuries, adding a modern twist to extraordinary films. All music is played completely live and includes works by Beethoven, Chopin, Django Reinhart, the Doors, Magic Numbers and Kraftwerk.

Alaska

Black Fish

Alaska takes you to one of the last great frontiers of the modern world. A land where steam freezes, fish have mastered cryogenics and the Yukon River can make you disappear. But faced with “a piece of the good life” the reality is no picnic, with plummeting temperatures, technical disaster and virtually no practical skill Alaska is a story of one man’s carefree, joyous journey which becomes a nightmarish plunge into extreme survival, overshadowed by all things dead, alive and Alaskan.


Alaska is an odyssey of epic proportion challenging our views on modern living for a life all of us would rather have, big or small.

Ensemble Concerts

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra do the splits!

Following on from our successful ensemble concerts last year, on one special day BSO will perform sectional evenings in three different locations across the Carn to Cove network.

St Endelion
The 28 strong String Ensemble will present one of the masterworks of the string orchestra repertoire, the Serenade for Strings by the Czech composer Antonin Dvorak at St Endellion Church. 

Brahms spotted Dvorak’s talent and gave him his enthusiastic support and encouragement, so it’s appropriate to couple masterworks by these great Romantic composers to open and close the Bournemouth Symphony Strings concert – Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings, and an arrangement for strings of Brahms’s String Quintet in G. The programme also includes Warlock’s Capriol Suite, for which the BSO musicians will be joined by young Cornish string players, and a work by the leading Dutch composer of the last century Otto Ketting, which evokes memories of his childhood titled Souvenirs du Printemps. The BSO’s Dutch ‘Young Composer in Association’, Frank Zielhorst, is a passionate advocate of Ketting’s music, and is looking forward to introducing this evocative work to Cornish audiences.

The BSO musicians will be joined by young Cornish string players for a performance of Warlock's Capriol Suite, and other items on the programme will include William Walton's Two Pieces from Henry V (as the concert will be given on Shakespeare's birthday).

Top

The Tolmen Centre
Bournemouth Symphony Winds Octet will perform Dvorak's Serenade for Wind instruments at the Tolmen Centre in Constantine, and they will also be joined by young wind players from Cornwall, who will perform alongside the BSO musicians in a joint item, and two wind ensembles from the county - Sax is our Business and Flautistas will also be performing in the concert.

Top

Callington Town Hall
Finally the Brass Quintet joins young Cornish brass players for an evening of popular 'Best of Brass' music at Callington Town Hall, including music from over three centuries from Greensleeves to Gershwin.
