About the theatre: Theatre by the Lake has brought the magic of theatre and the excitement of the imagination to one of Britain’s loveliest and remotest counties. Hailed by The Independent as "the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain", it opened in 1999 and is located a short stroll from Derwentwater on the edge of Keswick. There are two stages, a 400-seat Main House and 100-seat Studio and they present up to nine of their own productions of classic, modern and contemporary plays throughout the year as well as a large variety of visiting music, live comedy, film and dance acts. It is open 52 weeks each year.

Relaxed Performances: These are designed for anyone who needs a more easy-going atmosphere – they are perfect for adults and children with autism spectrum disorders or physical and learning disabilities, as well as parents with young babies and carers. Performances are adapted with loud sound effects and bright lights toned down to reduce anxiety and there is a more relaxed attitude to noise and movements during the show. Chill out spaces are also available outside of the theatre for those that need a break from the show. We send out information packs in advance of the show and a ticket for the performance includes an optional Q&A session with the cast after the show as well as a backstage tour. These performances are not available to book online. Please book with our Box Office so that we can tailor your experience to your needs.
