The Professor of Adventure: Wed, 29 Mar 2017

Theatre by the Lake
He smelt like a mountain goat, chain-smoked Woodbines and lived in a cave. Millican Dalton was a mountain guide, philosopher and self-proclaimed inventor of shorts.

William Wordsworth: Fri, 31 Mar 2017 until Sat, 1 Apr 2017

Theatre by the Lake
‘They all love you! They are obsessed with you! And look at yourself; what have you done to deserve such adulation?' William Wordsworth: poetic genius or irresponsible egotist? Theatre by the Lake's world premiere production explores the man behind the myth. It's 1812 and all is not well in the Wordsworth household.

Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys: Sat, 1 Apr 2017

Threlkeld Village Hall
Up and coming folk with Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys. Sam Kelly is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning Cornwall-based singer, song-writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. As a young child Sam spent many a night enraptured, listening to his Irish grandfather tell folk tales, sing folk songs, and play folk tunes on his melodeon. Having caught the bug, Sam has dedicated his life to rediscovering and renewing the sounds of his gaelic heritage, and creating exciting new music that transcends the boundaries of traditional and popular music. His debut album, 'The Lost Boys' came out in November 2015 to a storm of rave reviews, cementing Sam's place as one of the most rapidly rising stars on the UK folk scene, and enticing Radio 2 to invite the guys into the BBC studios as the featured live session guests on the Mark Radcliffe Show - an honour usually only bestowed upon much more established musicians. The album also landed Sam the Horizon Award for emerging artists at the 2016 Radio 2 Folk
