Theatre by the Lake

Holiday reference: DBATL

Against the dramatic setting that is the Lake District, the Theatre by the Lake is surely Britain’s most scenic. The landscape is matched by the quality of the performances, which will be complemented by backstage tours and pre-theatre talks on the processes involved from page to stage.

Holiday highlights:

  • Innovative productions in a stunning location
  • Contrasting performances in the intimate Studio with new plays by contemporary writers and more traditional favourites in the larger Main house
  • Talks in advance of each play and post theatre discussions in which guests have their say are a popular and rewarding part of the holiday 

Great reasons to join us:

  • Great value: all prices include full-board ensuite accommodation, good quality seats for two performances, transport to and from the theatre, pre-theatre talks, back-stage tours and guided optional walks on two days
  • Expert leader: our leaders are expert in their field and will ensure that you get the most from your holiday
  • Accommodation: enjoy high-quality accommodation and excellent food at our Country Houses
  • Sociability: spend time with like-minded people in a fun and relaxed environment
