We’ve joined forces with the Museum of Cornish Life in Helston with a month-long exhibition this August, along with a series of events and activities, made possible with support from the Heritage Fund.
“It’s lovely to have the opportunity to create this exhibition and launch it in one of our favourite museums” says Miracle founder and Artistic Director, Bill Scott. “This is such a great way of celebrating Miracle’s 40th birthday. It has been really entertaining sifting through our archive to find exhibits – an opportunity to reminisce and reflect and have a good laugh! I hope people will enjoy experiencing a rather unusual slice of Cornish life.”
“Miracle Theatre having been dramatically utilising Cornwall as a stage for over 40 years and we are delighted to present this important story. Cornwall has a rich cultural heritage and we wanted to help celebrate and share this important story with all our visitors” Annette MacTavish, Director Museum of Cornish Life.

West Cornwall, 1895. A once-glorious tin mine, on which the whole town has depended for generations, is on its last legs.
A weather-beaten opera company arrives to give a performance of Beethoven’s “Fidelio” in the town hall and finds itself tangled up in a scam to offload worthless shares in the mine.
When the mine unexpectedly yields up new treasures, melodrama starts to spill over into everyday life, reputations crumble and any notion of fair play is abandoned.
Made in Cornwall and based on a true story, Miracle Theatre’s feature film stars Jenny Agutter, Dudley Sutton and Ben Luxon alongside Helen Bendell, Ben Dyson, Steve Jacobs, Dean Nolan, and Jason Squibb.
The event will also include Miracle’s short film, Wind.
7pm, £5, to book call 01326 564027 or BOOK HERE.
