The 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. The theatre, hailed by The Independent as "the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain", opened in 1999. It is set a short stroll from Derwentwater on the edge of Keswick and adjacent to the Festival Village.
