Arts Council England NPO Decision for Theatre by the Lake

We’re delighted to continue to be included in Arts Council England’s National Portfolio. We’ve worked incredibly hard against a backdrop of some of the most challenging conditions ever to face our industry to create a bold and exciting vision for theatre in Cumbria.

Theatre by the Lake is committed to bringing high quality theatre and live performance to our local communities. With this support from Arts Council England we are focused on ensuring that we reach out to new audiences as well as the loyal attenders who have always been a key part of TBTL’s success.

Our NPO funding has and will continue to allow us to bring together young people, artists and under-served communities across Cumbria to make, share and celebrate great theatre. In 2023 we’ll develop our youth programme, host a youth festival for Cumbria and continue our work with local schools. We will provide opportunities for local artists to make and share theatre, partner with local and national organisations, and develop new work – entertaining audiences in our venue and across the country.

We look forward to working with our committed staff, partners and Arts Council England to deliver our exciting plans for the future.
