Live Streaming

Opera, theatre and ballet is streamed live to our big screen from the most prestigious arts venues at home and abroad. This makes it possible to watch productions from the English National Opera, Royal Opera House, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Bolshoi Ballet and The Royal Ballet here in Cumbria, at the same time they are being performed. As well as brilliant performance, we also show art as part of the Exhibition on Screen and Discover Arts programmes. Tickets range from £10 – £15 unless specified. View a copy of our seating plan here.

ENCORE! ENCORE! If you aren’t able to attend a live screening, we often screen specially recorded daytime encores a few days after the live event.

Occasionally, we also show RECORDED BROADCASTS which are slightly older, but much loved productions that we’ve been given another chance to screen.
