The fabulous actors from @birminghamstage didn't just have to contend with heavy showers in today's @HHLiveOnStage, but the most spectacular sea as well (esp this afternoon at high tide!). All a bit barmy, perfect for 'Barmy Britain'.


ADC Theatre 13:37 on 28th October Twitter

Glad to hear you enjoyed the show! In-person tickets for Macbeth have sold out, but there are still plenty of tickets available to watch as a stream from home!

The sun shone this afternoon for 'Barmy Britain' from @HHLiveOnStage. It was almost balmy! We're loving having this team at the Minack this week.


The Minack Theatre 15:25 on 27th October Twitter

Fancy something a bit different for Halloween? Then try ‘Six Wives of Henry VIII’.
(Stu McLoughlin’s portrayal of all 6 wives is definitely scary! Just ask Henry!)
