Cumbrian Creatives

Cumbrian Creatives is Theatre by the Lake's artists' network, helping us to find, support and celebrate local creative talent.

Whether you are a local aspiring theatre-maker at the beginning of your journey as an artist, or an experienced professional who grew up in the region, we want you to help us shape the future of TBTL.

Our recent offers have included our first digital scratch night, Open Space, with four groups of artists from across the North West presenting new pieces of work in development, open auditions and workshops with industry professionals.

We’re also hosting regular opportunities for artists to come and discuss a project with us, ask for advice or just find out more about the Theatre. Our Spring series of Walk and Talks continues with our next session on Thu 1 July when our Producer, Amy, Head of Communications, Rachel and Customer Experience Supervisor, Sophie will be available to chat to members of Cumbrian Creatives about all things Theatre by the Lake and Cumbrian Creatives.
