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 Cornish 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 when 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.

New and Selected Potatoes

John Hegley

In an ideal world, John Hegley would be mass-produced and sold in the shops. Not his books, they’re already out there, but the man himself. He’d cheer everyone up and distract you long enough to forget what you were bothered about.Whether it’s at his ludicrous drawings, silly join-in songs, or clever and unexpectedly structured poems, he hits the spot with all ages and brings in the laughs. If everyone could see life and each other through his glasses I bet the world would be a sweeter, safer, better and funnier place.

Tickets £12, £10, £5 Children from 9.
