The Theatre by the Lake
Where is it? : An easy short stroll from Keswick town centre, beside the lake.
Telephone 017687 74411
We like it because : Mostly because of the really fantastic Christmas productions but also some other things on for kids during the rest of the year.
What’s it all about? : It might seem a bit early to think of Christmas but you would not believe how fast this sells out. Tickets go on sale for this December’s production of “Swallows & Amazons” in April! .
We missed The Railway Children last year because we left it too late to get tickets, but instead we caught the last 2 tickets for Taffy Thomas’s Fireside Tales which we didn’t know was on as well, and which was wonderful.
This is not panto, anything on here is absolute class and done so well you are bound to love it.
The Theatre itself is really good, far better than any cinema, and although it’s mostly for grown ups during the summer, there are some things like the Keswick Mountain Festival which has some good stuff for kids around the Theatre.
Tips : Great place right beside the lake, always worth a visit even if only to feed the zillions of ducks and geese.
How much is it? : Not cheap but worth it. We won’t know the exact ticket prices until April 2013.
GALLERY – we will have the new pics in April.
