After the Dance: Mon, 29 May 2017 until Tue, 30 May 2017

Theatre by the Lake
A dazzling dissection of love, class and the capacity for self-deceit. David and Joan Scott-Fowler were Bright Young Things of the 1920s and live a glamorous life of hedonism and pleasure: debauched parties, serious drinking, sparkling wit and superficiality. But times have moved on and they are no longer as bright or as young as they once were. When a young and idealistic couple come into their lives, they begin to realise that the gaiety of their youth is wearing thin and the precarious game around which their existence is constructed begins to fall apart. Sharply satirical and heartrendingly beautiful, After the Dance is about a world on the cusp of enormous change. Neglected for many years, it is now considered to be one of the great works of a master dramatist.

How My Light is Spent: Wed, 31 May 2017 until Fri, 2 Jun 2017

Theatre by the Lake
“Kitty, my hands have disappeared.” “Pardon?” Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At £1.20 a minute. Jimmy is 34, lives with his mum and works at Newport’s only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is a phone sex worker living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty’s not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear. With Kitty giving some life-changing advice and Jimmy trying to reconcile himself to eventual invisibility, this unlikely duo succeed in turning each other’s world upside down. Winner of the Judges’ Award in the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, How My Light is Spent is a funny, hopeful play about loneliness, longing and being left behind. Strong language and sexual references.

This course is ideal for anyone who has never climbed or has only climbed indoors. You will have the opportunity to try a number of climbs on real rock and learn the basics of rock climbing. The course is based either in Langdale, one of the most scenic parts of the Lake District and only fifteen minutes by car or bus from Ambleside or in Borrowdale, which is within easy reach of Keswick. Precise details of the meeting time and place will be emailed to you when you book. You will have the opportunity to try a number of different climbs which can be as hard or as easy as you like. We will also show you how to tie onto the rope correctly and how to ‘belay’ (i.e. hold the rope while someone else climbs and lower them back down again.) At the end of the day there will also be the chance to have a go at abseiling. No prior experience is needed for this day: jus

Julie Felix: Sat, 3 Jun 2017

Threlkeld Village Hall
Julie Felix was born in America and came to Britain in 1956, where she quickly achieved success as a folk singer. Within a decade she had a well-established career, filling the Albert Hall in 1965 and described as “Britain’s First Lady of Folk” by the Times. In 1966 Felix was resident singer on BBC ‘The Frost Report’ and then hosted her own shows on the BBC from 1968 to 1970. She had 2 singles chart hits with ‘If I Could’ and ‘Heaven is Here’. She has always had an interest in campaigning for peace, from acting as humanitarian ambassador for Christian Aid in 1965 to participating in a peace march through Central America in the 1980s. It was a dangerous march, and witnessing the suffering of the indigenous peoples of Latin America inspired Julie to start singing again after a break of a few years. She has continued to campaign for peace projects including protests against the war in the Gulf. Singer songwriter Steve Harley said of her “There are those among us who just have to pla
