Sterts Theatre

Sterts is an Open Air Amphitheatre tucked away on the edge of Bodmin moor.

 Sterts Theatre is the South West’s only permanent outdoor, undercover theatre auditorium & we’re open for our 2021 season. 

Sterts Theatre is the South West’s only permanent outdoor, undercover auditorium, just 10 minutes north of Liskeard nestled on the edge of the atmospheric Bodmin Moor. Our unique open air auditorium provides a Covid secure space with the floating roof making it a perfect all weather venue which is accessible for all. 

We are delighted to be back for a full summer season with an exciting variety of affordable shows for all the family, opening on June 2nd with a production of a Little Mermaid from Sterts own Youth theatre. 

There is a packed season running through into September, with live music and contemporary theatre to toe tapping operettas, stand-up comedians, family shows and afternoon puppet shows to Shakespeare classics. 

As a charity Sterts has been proudly supporting local Cornish theatre companies, performers and musicians since 1988. After a such a challenging year for the arts we are looking forward to having lots of our regular touring companies back for a very exciting 2021 season. 

We are following government COVID-19 guidance and have been extensively Covid risk assessed. As a result of this we are operating at half our audience capacity and all tickets will be electronic, available to book online or by phoning the Box Office. 

Sterts is an outdoor experience so being in Cornwall where we can literally have all seasons in one day do wear your layers, bring a cushion for the wooden seats and perhaps a blanket.  There is free parking and our facilities are fully accessible to all. Our Café and bar are open on all performance evenings, and pre-show meals can be booked on line along with your tickets.  Alternatively, bring a picnic to enjoy in the spacious tree lined grounds before the performance. 

Sterts is located in Upton Cross, the entrance is on the B3254 Launceston to Liskeard road.  There is ample free car parking, but please inform them if you are bringing a coach.    For Sat Nav users, the post code is PL14 5AZ.    Full details on the website
