Studio Arts have begun work on their project in partnership with the Carlisle Cathedral!
They are creating mixed media work which will transform the Cathedral Well into a place of rest and relaxation.

Our artists are learning and refining creative techniques, spending time getting to know, and being inspired by the Cathedral while developing their ideas.

Keep an eye out for updates, this work will be open to the public in Carlisle Cathedral this summer!

We just wanted to spread the word about Theatre by the Lake's Relaxed Performance of Kes this Monday 25th April at 12pm. It’s a fantastic opportunity for audience members aged 11+ to experience live theatre, in a less intense environment.
More info - www.theatrebythelake.com/event/kes/

Kes is a powerful modern classic about the nature of true friendship. A moving and powerful coming of age story, based on the much loved book and film, will be brought to life on the TBTL stage, with original live music woven throughout.

What to expect at the Relaxed Performance:
"We stage this type of performance in order to create a more inclusive experience of theatre for those living with autism, dementia, learning disabilities and the parents of young children and babies. However, our ethos for Relaxed performances is that everyone is welcome to attend whether they specifically need a Relaxed Performance or not."
