Theatre by the Lake

Theatre by the Lake is one of the most beautifully situated theatres in the world.  It’s a creative hub for the communities of Cumbria and beyond.  “Our town and visitors cherish our two stages. So if it’s a great night out you’re after (following a day on the fells) or a chance to channel some creativity, you’re in for a treat when you visit us”.

The venue has a reputation for creating top-notch theatre productions and serving the community as a year-round busy arts centre hosting different art forms and festivals.

Watch actors, at the top of their game, on our stages and meet local heroes and national treasures. We’ve worked to make you laugh, question, contemplate and cry, and everything in between.

Whether you’re watching our shows, visiting our café, or dropping in for a workshop, we look forward to seeing you soon, and you can be sure of our famous friendly Cumbrian welcome.
