Make the most of the warm climate in Cornwall and head outdoors for a superb open air theatre performance at the beautiful Trebah Gardens. The long anticipated wait for the visit by the Miracle Theatre performance will be finally arriving on 9th to 13th June. The amphitheatre doors will be opening at 6:30pm, but an earlier arrival is recommended to get the best seats. The open air theatre embraces a wild western feel, with an outstanding new Italian western, which relates to the comical politics of gender. The typical gun shooting, swinging doors and savannah setting, calls out to the wannabe cowboy and cow girls to join the Magnificent Three on a western adventure at Trebah Garden.
