We've been many times on numerous Keswick trips. This time it was the Winterling in the Studio. Well acted and a good production. On balmy summer evenings you can step outside at the interval and admire the hills with a glass

This is a wonderful small theatre set near the lakeside. We usually go to a show when we spend a week in Keswick and it never disappoints. There is also a lovely cafe/ bar which serves excellent coffee and cake! Not to be missed!

We went to see "Rookery Nook" during our stay in Keswick. A great laugh-out-loud farce, well delivered by the resident rep company. The small theatre was pretty full for this midweek performance and everyone seemed very appreciative of the performers' efforts

Visited this theatre several times now and have never been disappointed. Whether it is a brass band or mystery play, it always is enjoyable in either of their two stages. Not cheap for the big productions, but well worth it for an evening out that will last a long time in your memories

Keswick is lucky to have such an excellent facility which is well marketed and generally of a good standard. Being small, it is limited to what it can show but takes maximum advantage.
Large car park adjacent.
