Old Laundry Theatre

Details

The Old Laundry Theatre is situated in Bowness-on-Windermere in the heart of the Lake District with a lively year round programme of drama, classical & folk music, spoken word, comedy and film.

Over the past two decades, the Old Laundry has welcomed a host of famous names from Alan Carr and Jenny Eclair to Victoria Wood and Sue Perkins. The theatre has an impressive star-studded list of trustees including household names Victoria Wood, Griff Rhys Jones, Alan Rickman and Alan Ayckbourn, all of whom are instrumental in bringing the most prestigious theatre companies and artists to Cumbria to perform in the intimate venue. Every season, the theatre hosts Sir Alan Ayckbourn's latest play on its world premier tour straight from Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre. The Theatre has also built an enduring relationship with The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) who bring their graduating student shows each year to the Lake District stage. Classical music, folk music, comedy, spoken word and an annual Cumbria Short Film Competition are also part of the annual programme of events creating a lively and professional season.
