Theatre by the Lake has brought the magic of theatre and the excitement of the imagination to one of Britain’s loveliest and remotest counties.

The theatre, hailed by The Independent as "the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain”, opened in 1999 and is set a short stroll from Derwentwater on the edge of Keswick and amid the magnificent western fells of the Lake District.

We have two stages, a 400-seat Main House and 100-seat Studio; we present up to nine of our own productions of classic, modern and new plays throughout the year. Six plays are performed in repertory from May to November by a resident company of up to 14 actors.

We aim to produce a new play every year and our Christmas plays have become firm favourites with family audiences. We aim for the highest standards of production and design and many Theatre by the Lake productions have won multi-star reviews from national and local critics.

The theatre hosts a variety of festivals and visiting companies and is open for 52 weeks each year.
