To all our patrons, artists and all in our community who uses the Acorn . . .

Coronavirus / Covid 19 update – The Acorn is temporarily closed

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and understanding over the last few weeks. We are grateful to the artists who were booked to perform in the next few months for making it so easy to reschedule many of the events. All live events until the end of June have now been cancelled or rescheduled. Sadly, the Penzance LitFest due to take place in July has also had to be cancelled.

It is unfortunate that so many events and performances have been affected by our temporary closure. You can now find up to date information about shows and dates affected in our What’s On section. We have more information coming through daily from promoters and artists.

If you have a booking for a show that has been re-scheduled then your existing tickets/booking reference will be valid for the new date.

We hope this is helpful and thank you for bearing with us during these unprecedented times.

At present we do not know when we will be back, but the moment the government guidelines permit us to re-open, we will be here!

With very best wishes,

Richie and the Acorn Team

We’d like to find more people with enthusiasm for and interest in sustaining live performance in our community.
