The Asylum 2019 took place on Carlyon Beach in St Austell Bay, Cornwall.

The Asylum is Kneehigh’s bespoke venue, providing an exciting space to perform our own shows and to host our friends and collaborators. It is a pop-up palace for fun, hope and escape. It is a sanctuary where we can come together to tell stories, to dance, to eat, to drink and celebrate.

This summer, the Asylum took place in an exciting new location… the beach!

Thank you to everybody who joined us for a festival-tinged summer season of live theatre, music, food and drink on Carlyon Beach in the heart of St Austell Bay.
