Theatre by the Lake

Theatre by the Lake has a setting on the shores of Derwentwater no other professional theatre in Britain can match. Each year it stages up to nine of its own productions of classic, modern and new plays on its two stages and has won multi-starred reviews from national critics. It also hosts festivals of literature, jazz, film and mountains. Daytime and evening refreshments are available from light snacks to pre-theatre meals.

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.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.theatrebythelake.com, where you can now choose your own seat and see the view of the stage before you buy. Alternatively, call the Box Office on 017687 74411 – it’s open from 9.30am to 8pm daily.

Location

The theatre is a five minute walk from the town centre (follow signs for the Lake), with Allerdale Borough Council’s Lakeside pay & display car park immediately adjacent to the theatre building. There are bus links with Ambleside to the south, Carlisle to the north, Penrith to the east and Cockermouth and Workington to the west.

WORDS BY THE WATER
14th - 20th March 2022


The curious, the bookish and the adventurous will gather once again at Theatre by the Lake this March to rub shoulders with our finest writers and thinkers at the leading literature festival in the North West, Words by the Water.

The spring festival not only celebrates writing in all its forms but stimulates debate and discussion which often continue over a drink in the theatre bar long after the event is over.

There are plenty of opportunities to engage with speakers in the question and answer sessions or to chat with them at the book signing (the shelves of the festival bookshop, Bookends, simply heave with irresistible fresh-off-the-press titles).
