Theatre By The Lake Welcomes Local People Into The Warmth This Winter

Theatre by the Lake have opened their doors this winter as a Warm Spot; a place that is warm and welcoming for people to visit if they need it.

The Keswick theatre is one of over 130 venues across Cumbria who have been awarded a grant from Cumbria Community Foundation to run a Warm Spot in their venue. It's part of a county-wide scheme by Cumbria County Council to offer a much-needed service in the community during the winter months, as people continue to struggle under the strain of the cost-of-living crisis and high fuel costs.

The facility at the theatre is open from 10am - 1pm Monday - Thursday until the end of March. Visitors are encouraged to come inside and take advantage of the warm space with a view of the fells, and access to free hot drinks and the theatre library.

David Jane, General Manager at Theatre by the Lake, said: "We are proud to be a part of this great initiative; one of our core values is about responding to our local community's needs and so our Warm Spot is providing us with a great way to connect with more local people. Everyone is welcome in the space and you don't need to give any explanation of why you're there or make an appointment to visit."
