The Tolmen Centre is at the heart of village life in Constantine, Cornwall. Many residents and friends enjoy events here; a wide and loyal audience has developed for the varied arts programme, and the Centre has built up an excellent reputation in the Comish arts community.

Miracle, Cube, Cscape, and Pipeline theatre companies are regular visitors both to perform and to develop new work.


Look for the Café Tolmen sign. We’re usually open for meals from 6pm whenever there’s an event at the Centre. Please call us on 01326 341353 to pre-book your meal.

The Tolmen  Centre  is a not-for-profit organisation entirely run by volunteer help – no-one gets paid for their time. This creates a rather special ethos around the place – and allows us to be ambitious in what we promote and undertake.

STOP PRESS: This show is in the Top 5 “Editors Theatre Picks” in the Saturday Guardian of 25th February

Emails unopened, cup-a-soup undrunk, a secret in the stock room; Emma Barnicott’s life is leaking as she pines for a world beyond her trading estate office.When she meets a man online who wants to talk to her about more than boilers and two port valves Emma must decide if the chance of a joyous love is worth trading for an imperfect life – or will there always be dead woodlice in the infinity pool? An outstanding performance by Bea Roberts, author of And Then come the Nightjars.

“Utterly unique and exceptional in every way, it’s a heart-breaking story of a stunted life, told with theatrical verve and palpable compassion”
★★★★★ The Stage

“Rare and extraordinary: exceptional storytelling that is full of theatrical spirit.”
★★★★★ The List

“Completely different and deliciously quirky… this original show proved painfully funny and oddly moving.”
★★★★ The Guardian

“Roberts is an intensely funny writer…a writer to watch”
★★★★ The Telegraph

“What at first seems to be a rather small, modest play turns out to be not only a tender, finely observed portrait of male friendship, but also a stirring requiem for the vanishing dignity of rural England.”
★★★★ The Evening Standard
