The Greatest Showman (PG): Mon, 26 Feb 2018

Kirkgate Arts Centre
Hugh Jackman stars in The Greatest Showman, screening at the Kirkgate Centre An original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, a man with big dreams and even bigger ambitions, who figured that showmanship could be his way out of poverty and might provide hope for his wife and kids. He went on to gather a variety of performers and those who some labelled freaks, and staged a circus that drew applause from some, and the ire of others. The film charts Barnum’s life from a poor upbringing to his first proper circus in New York in the 1800s, a time when such shows were frowned upon as morally dubious. With songs from Oscar-winning La La Land lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the film also stars Zac Ephron as Barnum’s business partner – initially sceptical about the ‘show’ part of the enterprise.

Nina - A Story about Me and Nina Simone: Tue, 27 Feb 2018 until Sat, 3 Mar 2018

Theatre by the Lake
Backed by a brilliant band, Olivier Award-nominated actress Josette Bushell-Mingo (Disney’s The Lion King) mixes story and song as she draws together tales from the life of Nina Simone and her own extraordinary career. Touching upon the 1960s civil rights movement, the show draws into parallel the struggles of the civil rights movement today. Nina Simone was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century. She was the consummate musical storyteller who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, and love through a magnificent body of work. Having played to packed out audiences at London’s Young Vic and the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, we are thrilled to be presenting this acclaimed show at Keswick by our Associate Artist.

Trophy: Wed, 28 Feb 2018

Theatre by the Lake
A hard hitting documentary, Trophy is a startling exploration of the evolving relationship between big game hunting and wildlife conservation that will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world from extinction. Be prepared to have your preconceptions challenged. Thanks to Munro Films

The Bench: Fri, 2 Mar 2018 until Sun, 4 Mar 2018

Kirkgate Arts Centre
Eight short plays, many characters – the only thing they have in common is ‘The Bench’ where they meet, part, argue, cry and laugh in the course of one day. A new play for our disjointed and discordant times which is both strangely poignant and yet full of the comedy of everyday life. Cockermouth Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS)

David Baddiel: Sat, 3 Mar 2018

Carnegie Theatre
Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two critically-acclaimed West End runs, David Baddiel takes his Olivier-nominated one-man show to theatres nationwide. My Family: Not the Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats. A massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come and be offended on David’s behalf!
