About Theatre by the Lake 

Theatre by the Lake, hailed by The Independent as 'the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain', opened in 1999. It is a short stroll from Derwentwater on the edge of Keswick, amid the magnificent western fells of the Lake District, which has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. The theatre has two stages, a 400-seat Main House and 100-seat Studio, and presents up to nine of its own productions throughout the year as well as hosting a variety of festivals and visiting companies, playing to over 125,000 people per year. Led by Artistic Director Liz Stevenson and Executive Director James Cobbold, Theatre by the Lake is the only Arts Council funded producing theatre in Cumbria, generating a further £2.5m through sales and fundraising each year to support work onstage and the provision of inspiring community engagement programmes for people of all ages.  For five years running it has been voted the Most Welcoming Theatre in the North West in the UK Theatre Awards. Theatre by the Lake (as Cumbria Theatre Trust) is a registered charity, number 516673.
