Lakes Culture

In England’s Lake District, familiar things are made extraordinary by the landscape. There’s outstanding culture in inspiring settings, and a creative energy that puts the Lakes in a class of its own. With artworks in mountains and forests, galleries and artists’ studios, intimate venues and outdoor stages, and a packed programme of festivals – not just music and comedy but wool, print and ceramics, all within a few short miles.

Big names - now known across the world - have long found inspiration here; the radical thinkers and artist pioneers of their time … William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, JMW Turner, John Ruskin, Kurt Schwitters and Andy Goldsworthy. And tourists have been visiting for more than 200 years – for adventures for the body and soul, the mind and spirit.

Lakes Culture brings together and showcases some of the cultural highlights from the year round programme of outstanding music, theatre, exhibitions and special events taking place in our acclaimed cultural landscape. Experience a cultural break with a difference in the Lake District.
