Theatre by the Lake
Set on the shores of Derwentwater in Keswick, Theatre by the Lake is Cumbria's only year-round professional producing theatre. Alongside hosting a wide range of visiting drama, music, dance, talks, comedy and film, the theatre also offers a summer season of six eclectic plays, a christmas show for all the family and a spring production. Additional regular features in the theatre's year include the Keswick film festival in February, the literature festival in March and the Keswick jazz festival in May.
The theatre offers easy access for all its users. There are lifts to all levels and wheelchair users can get to all front-of-house and backstage areas. Both auditoria have enhanced-hearing and induction loop systems.
Drop in for a coffee and take in views down to the lake, order your pre-theatre supper before an evening performance and then enjoy interval and post-show drinks in our stalls and circle bars.
