We’ve just received details of the Summer Season at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick and it looks like they have some real crackers lined up.
The focus in the main house is on comedy - ‘Noises Off’ is one of the funniest plays that you will ever see; it’s perfect for the Theatre by the Lake and I can’t believe that it’s over ten years since I last saw this in Keswick. It was a massive hit last time round and it’s likely to be hugely popular this time as well, so you’ll need to book early to avoid missing out.
They also have ‘Hay Fever’ by Noel Coward and the first ever performance of ‘Keep Smiling Through’ by Lisa Evans.
There’s lots of visiting Drama and Dance too. ‘Wicked Women’ starring Caroline and Lilian from The Archers sounds like it might be a highlight; they take an amusing look at wicked women (no surpises there!) from throughout history.
If you are coming to our Keswick Cottages this Spring, then there is a also a chance to see ‘A View from the Bridge’ by Arthur Miller – It’s an all time classic and I can’t wait.
If you haven't already got a break away planned, then it would be worth booking a stay at one of our Keswick Cottages between the 18th and the 22nd May, so that you don't miss out on the Keswick Mountain Festival.
The Theatre by the Lake will be the venue for the lectures and they have several great speakers coming – Sir Chris Bonnington, Ray Mears and radical extreme sportsman Tim Emmett are headlining (You might have seen Tim racing Jeremy Clarkson in the Verdon Gorge on Top Gear or doing stunts in Hollywood movies). I’ve seen him speak before and you can’t help but be inspired by his energy and enthusiasm, as he describes his bonkers exploits and adventures.
Wherever your tastes lie, come and stay at one of our Lake District Cottages and dip into some of what the Theatre by the Lake has on offer – you won’t be disappointed.
