What an entertaining hour at the Boathouse. We have never experienced anything like this production. The intimate theatre was really special. Very good fun but professional and engaging. The hour just flew by. This venue and its performances should be in the top 5 of...More

We attended the wonderfully entertaining new Farce at the Boathouse Theatre last night - very amusing & well worth seeing! Congratulations to Jason & the team - we wish you every success for the season, and look forward to another 'Fancy Dress, Murder & Steak'...More

Great little theatre tucked away just off the harbour in St Ives. Great for children and adults alike. Recommend it to everyone who visits St Ives

It's a jolly, intimate night in this tiny theatre space. Please do support it. We saw Strangers in the Night there: high acting standard and a gratifying shriek from the audience at the denouement. All a stone's throw from the harbour in St Ives
