This book is about how a group of people had a dream – a state of the art 1,000 seat theatre and concert hall for Cornwall – and how they managed against all the odds to turn their dream into a reality.

It is stories like these that, in their retelling, have the power to inspire others to start similar journeys. This book should be read by anyone who also has a dream because it will equip them with an understanding of what it takes to triumph over the naysayers, the planners and the challenges of fundraising on a large scale.

This is Chris Warner’s and Sarah Smith’s story of how the Hall for Cornwall was conceived, the fun and the frustrations, the tears and tantrums and the love and laughter of the its gestation and how this intrepid group managed to turn their dream into a remarkable reality.
