Kneehigh Theatre company returns to Cornwall for a summer of wild nights and beautiful theatre in The Asylum
Monday 18, April 2011
The Asylum is back. Kneehigh Theatre Company’s jaw-dropping, spirit-lifting nomadic theatre space returns, this summer, to Cornwall. The perfect destination for a summer break.
Following its inaugural season last Summer, the Asylum will return to Tywarnhale Farm, near Blackwater in the heart of Cornwall from July 23rd - August 28th.
There will be TWO brand new, made-in-Cornwall shows:
Midnight’s Pumpkin tells one of the greatest stories of all time. Inspired by the story of Cinderella, this night of dancing, story-telling and celebration will all end in a right royal knees-up in a field, for a tipsy, tingling night of romance and magic.
Plus, Kneehigh will premiere its new touring show The Wild Bride. This epic and poetic wondertale is classic Kneehigh stuff. Charting a life from girlhood to womanhood, you can expect instinctive storytelling, devilish humour and a heady mix of live and found music. A grown up romance for brave children and adults alike.
There will also be music, children’s shows, laughter, dancing, and good food and drink - all locally sourced.
A visit to Kneehigh’s Asylum would make a perfect part of a summer weekend in Cornwall, especially if combined with Cornwall’s beautiful sandy beaches, gorgeous food and the many other cultural activities including gardens, galleries and a full programme of events at the Eden Project.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
