Theatre by the Lake

Keswick CA12 5DJ 01768 774 411

We say

Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake is one of England’s most innovative small theatres, regularly punching above its weight with its award-winning productions and renowned annual literature festival, Words by the Water. As well as seasonally changing productions (many of them family friendly) there are lectures, films, talks, music and comedy, and the theatre is also a main venue for the annual Keswick Jazz Festival. It’s down by Derwent Water (the café is a handy place to know about if you’re heading to or from a cruise), just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre.
