Newquay's Only Live Theatre


Lane Theatre - Poetry Competition

Lane Theatre is running a poetry competition in 2021 to try and inspire folk in this wonderful county of Cornwall.

Entry is free and there are prizes in four age categories to be won as well as the chance to read your winning entry on show night currently planned to take place in February.

Entrants should live in Cornwall and have a Newquay connection (attend school or work here or belong to a Newquay based association).

There are more details on our Facebook page (Lane Theatre Newquay) and potential entrants are invited to email the theatre at to request the entry forms and rules.

Your theatre needs You!

No! not your country this time, just your local Lane Theatre

After two years of fundraising from our raffles, we have raised £2000 towards car park improvement.   The aim is to remove that sinking feeling that can be experienced in wet conditions when parking on the grass in the centre of the road loop.

The cost to carry out the works required will be in excess of £12,000 hence the drive to raise £5k as part of our match funding.  Smaller grants have or are being applied for from other local funders.

There are 100 plots available at £50 and each ‘plot’ can contain up to 30 character spaces for your name, business name or name for a memorial.

These names will be collated on a plaque or board that will be on display at the theatre recording the event and donation.

If you have enjoyed attending our plays and shows in the past and would like to contribute towards this essential improvement then please contact:
Andy Fox – email He will supply details of how to make your donation and also if you wish to select a particular plot that has not already been claimed.
