Subscribe to our newsletter Home - Carn to Cove


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

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.

Jeffrey Holland

...and this is my friend Mr Laurel

Fulfilling a long held desire to pay tribute to his hero Stan Laurel, Jeffrey Holland tells this intriguing, funny and often poignant tale of friendship, love and dedication about one of Hollywoodís great film comedians. Jeffrey (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang M'Lord) stars in this one-man show about friendship, memories and a couple of remarkable lives. Set in the bedroom of a sick Oliver Hardy the show takes place during Laurel's visit to the dying man. Recounting their past success as the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, this is a humorous and touching look at one of the great cinematic partnerships of the last century.

Jeffrey will take part in a Q&A session after the show.
