Comedy greats, sing-a-longs, dancing and puppetry are set to grace The Hall for Cornwall in Truro over the next two weeks.

Beginning on May 27, comedian, writer and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig known for her Bake Off presenting brings her new show 'Next Slide' to Cornwall, with funny facts, jokes and a quick fire Q and A on the cards.

The entertainment moves on to a musical theme for half term on May 31 the Sing-a-long-: The Greatest Showman comes to Hall for Cornwall.

The hit musical will have with on-screen lyrics so everyone can join in.

The show’s live host will teach the audience a unique set of dance moves and help them make the most of their interactive prop bags. Fancy dress is and full audience participation is strongly encouraged to get the most out of the event.

Younger audiences and families can enjoy mischief and colourful characters as The Twirlywoos come to town in half term and the Spring Bank Holiday on June 1 and 2. The CBeebies stars are brought to life on stage with beautifully inventive puppetry, promising a show of colourful fun and laughter.

The week will end with more comedy with Jasper Carrott perfoming his Stand up and Rock on June with help of The Bev Bevan Band (founding member of ELO and The Move) and special guest Andy Bennett.

Rhod Gilbert is back on the road and calling into the hall on June 8. His latest show, The Book of John is said to be ‘darkly hilarious’, and sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. It’s raw, very personal and brutally honest.

Next up, it’s Omid Djalili: The Good Times Tour on June 9. This multi award-winning comedian and actor is always provocative and entertaining, and recently cracked a cheeky joke during a special Jubilee celebration about the Queen missing the State Opening of Parliament, to which Her Majesty smiled and raised her hand. His credits range from Hollywood films to television and the West End. Omid appeared in the smash hit Mama Mia 2: Here We Go Again, His Dark Materials for BBC1 and HBO, and Letter For The King on Netflix.

Finally, it’s a show of two halves as Stewart Lee – described as ‘the world’s best living stand-up comedian’ (Times) – performs over two nights on June 10 and 11.

Snowflake/Tornado is a double-bill of two 60-minute sets, performed back-to-back on the night. The first half, Snowflake, will be heavily rewritten in the light of the two years the show has been laid off, looking at how the Covid-Brexit era has impacted on the culture war declared on ‘lovely woke snowflakes by horrible people’.

The second half, Tornado, questions Stewart’s position in the comedy marketplace.
