Overview

The Old Laundry Theatre is a 270 seat theatre-in-the-round situated in Bowness-on-Windermere, and a thriving cultural hub for residents and visitors to the Lake District. Over the past two decades, the Old Laundry has welcomed a host of famous names from Alan Carr and Jenny Eclair to Victoria Wood and Sue Perkins. And along with an impressive star-studded list of trustees, husband and wife Roger Glossop and Charlotte Scott name one of the country's most famous playwrights as the inspiration behind the theatre's creation: "We wouldn't be where we are now without Alan Ayckbourn's support, he gave us the confidence to open the theatre and its success is down to him".

Thoroughly enjoyed the show once again with grandchildren. Lasts about an hour then you can go and enjoy Tea with Peter Rabbit. Very well organised and friendly staff.

Hi, not at the Old Laundry Theatre I'm afraid, but the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction which shares a building with the theatre will be a hive of activity! Best wishes OLT
