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.

Luke Wright, Poet Laureate

After the hugely acclaimed What I learned from Johnny Bevan and Frankie Vah, we’re delighted to welcome back Luke Wright. With a new Poet Laureate due to be announced in 2019 he’s chucking his hat in the ring. But let’s be honest, he’s a dark horse at best. But Luke really does care about Britain, so he’s on a mission to write poems that might be able to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Luke delves into the murky world of poets laureate past: the heroes, the villains, and ones who didn’t even write poetry.
