Grampound Village Hall is an excellent venue for theatre shows and films. With its raked seating it can comfortably accommodate more than 100 people all with an excellent view of the stage or screen.
The hall plays host to a wide range of local and touring theatre groups. Each year there are more than 20 live shows. The dates are determined by the timetables of the theatre companies but, at any time, there is a forward programme in place for the next few months. The shows have been running since the hall opened in 2004 and, in October 2015, the hall celebrated hosting its 200th show. Over 10,000 people have attended the shows in that time.
Theatre groups that come to Grampound include:
Miracle Theatre • Baroque Theatre • Untold Theatre • North South Theatre • Trebiggan Productions
Tangram Theatre Company • Joli Vyann • Cornwall Youth Theatre • Pipeline Theatre
Nearta Theatre • Trifle Gathering Productions • cscape dance company • Scary Little Girls

Grampound Film Club started under the umbrella organisation, C-fylm, in May 2016. It runs on the first Wednesday of each month. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the film starts at 7.30 p.m. There is an interval for refreshments.
Moviegoers must become members of C-fylm which costs £6 per annum (calendar year basis). You can join the first time that you come to the Film Club. This money goes to C-fylm to help pay for the licence from the Motion Picture Licensing Company and it covers admission on that first visit. Thereafter, entry to each film costs £3 per person.
If you would like to be added to our mailing lists for forthcoming shows and films, please email to chair of village hall with your details.
We are pleased to advise that we plan to have in August the first film and the first show at the hall since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Grampound village hall film club restarts on Wednesday 4th August.
23 Walks is a complex, tender and heart-warming comedy drama about finding love later in life. Dave (Dave Johns) and Fern (Alison Steadman), two older strangers, have been bruised by their individual circumstance. They meet walking their dogs in a North London park, and over the course of twenty-three walks together the romance begins to blossom. But Dave and Fern haven't been completely honest with one another and their future together may be threatened by the secrets they have withheld.
We no longer have to use one way systems or insist on QR code scanning but we will be capping numbers at 60, spacing out seating, ventilating the hall and recommending sanitising on arrival and face coverings. Membership has to restart again so it will be £6 for this film and then £3 per film thereafter. C fylm are recommending buying tickets online at ticketsource
Grampound Film Club will then allocate you a membership number, which will be on a membership card that you can collect on the door of the screening. C Fylm will add your membership number to your Ticketsource account. For your next screening, input your last name and your membership number to unlock the discounted £3 price for the next film. You can also purchase and renew on the door but we are limiting numbers to 60 for this first film. We totally understand some people may not be ready to return yet but we feel it is appropriate to try to restart and see how people feel. We will be offering refreshments because this is personal choice - again we understand if people are not wanting to do that yet. This is a delightful film with which to restart.
An outdoor performance on the field by the hall. Owdyado Theatre bring you a darkly comic evening of mini Twisted Tales by writers from Cornwall and across the UK. This selection of mini plays includes tales of two strangers pondering the nature of ghosts on New Year’s Eve, a supermarket cashier who can read dark secrets in her customers’ mundane purchases, and a cautionary tale of what could befall you should you dare to eat somebody else’s Twirl
Estimated running time: 1hr 15 mins, no interval.
Everyone welcome, but as a guide we recommend the show for age 12+.
As it is outdoors please bring something you want to sit on!
Tickets are limited to 60 in total so book now to avoid missing out. You can book via Villages in Action.
