Asylum Announcement #1

The Asylum will return to Cornwall in 2014

For those of you wondering, we're not putting the Asylum tent up this summer: We're resting it for a year becasue we're looking for somewhere new to pitch it in Cornwall next year. So we will be back , in 2014, in a new location and with new shows. We are not ones for resting on laurels or letting stones gather moss!

(Also, inevitably, it means we'll have brilliant weather this summer!)

Of course, this doesn't mean we won't be in Cornwall this year: Tristan & Yseult is at the Hall for Cornwall in June, and we'll be announcing more exciting things later on this year. So, see you at the Hall for Cornwall, and thank you for the brilliant three years at Tywarnhayle Farm. Here's to pastures new! 

Tristan & Yseult


Tristan & Yseult, which premiered at Restormel castle in 2003, is a story of passion, obsession, betrayal and enduring love which critics have called “a triumph”, “deliriously joyful” and “breathtaking in every respect”

This critically acclaimed production catapulted Kneehigh onto the national stage. This is the original tale of forbidden desires, broken hearts and the agony of choosing one human being over another. Seen through the eyes of the 'Unloved', Tristan & Yseult blends comedy, live music, grand passion and tender truths, in an irresistible night of love.

Tristan & Yseult will be at the Hall for Cornwall from 25th – 29th June. Tickets can be booked by calling the box office on 01872 262466, or visiting
