Theatre by the lake by Edwin Seppings

The Theatre by the Lake, on the shores of Derwentwater, is a professional producing and presenting theatre. The theatre is open year round and puts on home-produced professional drama productions. These include a five month summer season of six plays in repertoire, a major Christmas production, and at least one other production in the spring. Drama, music, dance, talks, comedy, and film are part of the all inclusive offerings.

The building looks right at home with its traditional Lakeland exterior of locally-sourced stone, slate and roughcast. The main theatre seats 400 while a studio theatre holds an audience of 100. There are also two gallery spaces and conference rooms. Dame Judi Dench is the theatre's president.
