Family Friendly Activities

We do everything we can to make families feel welcome and included. See below for special events or activities available which families can enjoy together.

Bairden

bairden = bairn = a child (Cumbrian dialect), bairn den = a place for children to gather, bear den = a place for teddy bears to meet
 
'Bairden' are FREE weekly storytelling sessions which take place every Friday from 10.30am to 11.15am at the Theatre.

For children under 5 and their parents, these sessions run in conjunction with the bookshop Bookends in Keswick.

  • Listen to a new story each week
  • Bring a teddy bear to join in the fun
  • Teddy bears may be invited to join in with some acting – a theatre is where stories come to life!
  • Free to attend and no need to book in - just turn up on the day
Upcoming Bairden dates:
 
Fri 12 April at 10.30am - 11.15am: The Rhyming Rabbit by Julia Donaldson. This session is led by practitioner Becky Cole and held at Theatre by the Lake.
 
Don't worry about booking ahead – all you need to do is turn up!
