Details for The Old Laundry Theatre

The Old Laundry Theatre is an original experience, based in Bowness-on-Windermere. The full programme of events runs from August to September and is housed alongside The Old Laundry Bistro, where visitors can enjoy a delicious pre show meal.

The Old Laundry Theatre & Bistro is situated in Bowness-on-Windermere in the heart of the Lake District. Our lively annual season of music, theatre, comedy and film usually commences in August and finishes in December.

Sir Alan Ayckbourn, a trustee of the theatre, opened the theatre in 1992. The theatre season is run by a registered charity, Bowness Theatre Festival Ltd, with financial and practical support from The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction - the business it shares a building and facilities with. Its design is based on Sir Alan's original theatre in Scarborough, making it one of only six ‘in-the-round' theatres in the UK (seating up to 280 in the round or 250 in a conventional stage layout).

Experience relaxed buffet-style dining in before the show in The Old Laundry Bistro. With mouth-watering dishes from hearty soups to delicate desserts on offer, all made from fresh local produce, there's sure to be something to tempt you! Join us for a light supper or a full three-course meal, for a stunning start to your evening at the theatre. The bistro is popular so be sure to book your table when purchasing your theatre tickets.
