From M6 jct 40 and follow A66 towards Keswick, follow brown signs to Theatre and Lakeside. On foot the theatre is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick.


Explore the town recording stories about your life and listening to other people's in a unique, immersive bike ride by award winning artists Blast Theory.

Set off in search of the perfect place to hide a secret. Ride on and the voices of strangers will draw you to new and unknown places.

“A gloriously enlivening piece of theatre ...the show’s greatest gift is that it manages to embrace the remorseless rush of the City while insisting on the individual’s ability to pierce it with quiet reflection.”


“We are truly fortunate in this century, in the wired and anonymous city, to have rediscovered Aboriginal notions of songlines and Dreamtime, to explore with the aid of mobile technology a new form of strangely low-tech play. Rider Spoke was magical.”


Rider Spoke invites you on a ride guided by a narrator and a delicate soundtrack. With a smartphone attached to your handlebars, discover heartfelt stories told by people around the world. Take time to reflect on the people and moments in your life that mean the most while you ride. Then decide whether to leave behind a story of your own.

Rider Spoke is created by the award winning, internationally acclaimed Blast Theory and has been presented at over 30 locations around the world including Adelaide, Madrid, Copenhagen, Athens and London.

Rider Spoke is taking place at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick 14th - 16th April

Rides start every half an hour and last up to 90 minutes.

We provide everything you need to take part, including a smartphone, bike and safety equipment. Non-cyclists can take part on foot, in a wheelchair or a mobility scooter. If you’d prefer to use your own bike you can do that too.
