Rookery Nook: Mon, 15 Sep 2014

Theatre by the Lake
She’s pretty, wears pink pyjamas and turns up unexpectedly at Rookery Nook, a rented holiday home in Somerset. Local tongues begin to wag in the quiet seaside town of Chumpton-on-Sea and so begins a chaos of embarrassments, excuses and evasions, minor deceptions and major misunderstandings. Throw in a ferocious German stepfather (with an equally ferocious dog), a retired drunken Admiral, a hen pecked husband and a malevolent charlady and you have the perfect line-up for a funny, fast-moving farce by master of the genre Ben Travers. Simply great fun for the whole family.

The Winterling: Mon, 15 Sep 2014

Theatre by the Lake
From the acclaimed writer of Jerusalem comes a brilliantly twisted thriller about living on the edge. It’s winter on Dartmoor and in a derelict farmhouse West waits for former associates from the city. The wine has been poured and he’s put on his suit. This could be his chance to get back in the game: a reunion and a return from exile. But there’s a mysterious girl upstairs, an axe by the door, and the dog is missing. Nothing is quite what it seems and going home will come at a price. “Like Harold Pinter crossed with Guy Ritchie plus Withnail and I” The Independent

Multi Activity Day: Sat, 20 Sep 2014

More Than Mountains
If you would like to try rock climbing, gorge walking and abseiling all on the same day why not come along on one of our fun packed multi-activity days? Our multi-activty days are based in Langdale where there is somewhere to get changed and a pub to warm up in after your adventure. The morning will start with an introduction to rock climbing; you will get to try a range of climbs and learn the climbing basics. You will learn how to "tie-in" (tie the rope to your climbing harness) and how to "belay" (hold the rope for your climbing partner). You will also get a chance to try abseiling. After lunch you will go gorge walking which is also known as gill scrambling ("gill" is a Lake District word for mountain stream). You will be scrambling up Stickle Ghyll, traversing along the side of pools, climbing up waterfalls and (if you want to) getting very wet. You don't need any experience or any specialist equipment. There will be a maximum of six people per instructor. This is what ou
