With performances to enchant all the family, we’ve whittled it down to our top five must-see concerts and shows for 2023.
Fisherman’s Friends The Musical – running from the 11th – 22nd April 2023
Described as “the true story of the Cornish chart topping buoy band”, this fun, feel-good musical number follows the true story of the rise to fame of a group of Cornish fishermen who sing the traditional working songs and shanties their families had recited for generations.
A real family friendly outing (with a warning for some slightly salty language!), this show is the perfect way to celebrate Cornish traditions and heritage whilst visiting the county.
London Mozart Players – Sunday 26th February 2023
If you delight in watching live classical music performances, the London Mozart Players – one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras – will be performing at Hall for Cornwall on the 26th February.
The Hall for Cornwall also offers a classical subscription package for concerts in their 2023 season, including the Carousel Ensemble on Sunday 2nd April and the Manchester Camerata on Tuesday 2nd May.
