Enjoy Miracle Theatre Around the River Fal this August
If you are looking for something special for all the family this summer – look no further!
Over the past two months Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre has been touring around the South West delighting audiences with their current show ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ and now it's heading your way.
Miracle Theatre has once again teamed up with the King Harry Ferry and the Fal River Team to offer audiences the chance to take a special ‘showboat’ from Falmouth to see The Importance of Being Earnest on Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th August at St Mawes Castle.
The journey across the picturesque estuary will include a complimentary pint of ale from the local Skinners brewery range, a sunset cruise back to port, all hosted by the ‘Miracles cabin crew’ (Kyla Goodey and Sally Crooks of Trifle Gathering). This year the Showboats also marks the start of Miracle’s season of ‘Theatre around the Fal River’ this summer.
“We are so pleased to be working with the Fal River team to run our showboats again this summer. People have really enjoyed this addition to our tour over the last couple of years, and for those based in Falmouth, it’s a lovely way to get to one of our most popular venues – without having to jump in the car!”
Tim Light, Director King Harry’s Cornwall added “ Just the best way to travel to and from a Miracle performance, we love being involved with such amazing local theatre and are delighted to support the Miracle teams summer programme”
So round up your friends and family, pack up a picnic (and, of course, the all-important chairs, blankets and clothing for all seasons!) and head off out into the unique landscape surrounding the Fal River.
