Fancy ditching the daily commute for a morning swim before work? 

Theatre by the Lake is nestled on the shores of Derwentwater in the heart of the Lake District National Park – a newly created World Heritage Site. Described as the jewel in the crown of The Lake District, no one expects to find a producing theatre of exceptional quality in such a rural location, set amongst the magnificent backdrop of the Cumbrian fells. After twenty years of success building a thriving annual audience of 125,000, the theatre’s close-knit and hardworking team have ambitious plans for growth.

We have a vacancy for an experienced Development Manager to focus on generating income through the growth of individual giving, corporate sponsorship, trusts and foundations and events.
