Donate Now –  Your Support Makes a Real Difference

Like theatres all over the country, we've had to close our doors since 17 March.  As a charity we have to raise £8 of every £10 we spend, so this situation has hit us particularly hard and we've had to make some very difficult decisions, reducing our team and cancelling all programmed shows for the rest of the year.
We are reaching out to our audiences and community to help us at this time and ensure that the venue you know and love can reopen in 2021. We need your help now more than ever; if you're able to offer a donation we would be incredibly grateful. If you also say ‘yes' to Gift Aid, we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated (at no extra cost to you) which makes your donation worth even more to us. 

You can make a donation online today as detailed below, or via our JustGiving page. If you don't wish to donate online, you can send us a cheque to Cumbria Theatre Trust, Theatre by the Lake, Lakeside, Keswick, Cumbria CA12 5DJ.  

If you'd like to talk to us about your donation, make a regular donation or to work in partnership with TBTL, please email us at 

Our audiences and community are what make our theatre special and we're hugely grateful for your support and patience during this challenging time.
