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.

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 £4 per person.
If you would like to be added to our mailing lists for forthcoming shows and films, please email to Simon Fann with your details.
We are pleased to advise that the Film Club restarted in August 2021 after the long break for Covid. The first show was held outside the hall on 20 August.
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.
Knives Out is an old school whodunnit with a refreshing twist that is whip smart and as sharp as a knife. Even if you do manage to figure out all the pieces by the end, there’s no way of knowing just how much fun you’ll have getting there.
Rian Johnson gets to shake off the cobwebs and blow the dust off this old genre as he brings it back to life in the funniest way possible. Fresh off the heels of the mega franchise that is Star Wars, Rian Johnson is back to where we love to see him with his own original film. Now for me, Rian Johnson is yet to put a foot wrong, from his indie hit Brick to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I’ve loved everything he’s ever done, and that hasn’t changed with his latest hit Knives Out. This film blooms before your eyes, it’s confident filmmaking that makes you feel every bit of fun the cast and crew were having fooling us every bit of the way. What we are all so desperate to know is what happened to crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) on his 85th birthday – was it murder or suicide?
That’s what Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) must figure out. Set at Harlan’s gothic estate, Blanc must round up the band of misfits that make up Harlan’s family, and figure out what’s afoot! Armed with his label of “The Last of the Gentlemen Sleuths”, and his southern accent, Daniel Craig breaks off the shackles of Bond and looks like he’s loving every minute of it.
