Play

Overview

There’s no better place to begin a lifelong love of film than at Rheged’s atmospheric cinema. A world away from the average multiplex, it was built for large format movies. We have a lively programme of family films in both 2D and 3D, with children’s favourites shown every day during school holidays. Our popular Saturday children’s film club, with £2 tickets, runs from September to April.

Overview

Our children’s activities are led by local people who have a gift for sharing their skills. Our inspiration comes from what’s happening at Rheged and beyond, covering everything from kitchen fun to woodworking and 3D printing to bushcraft. There are activities for all ages and our children’s programme, features storytelling, family film and theatre too.

Our Create Pottery painting area is closed this Autumn.

During this time we’re working on a brand new soft play and making space, which we’re delighted to be bringing to you in December 2019.

We apologise for any inconvenience during this time.

Overview

Modelled on a Roman fortress, with lots of turrets and tunnels to explore, our outdoor play area is just outside the main entrance – not far from our ice cream shop! Children love clambering along the ramparts and whizzing down the giant slide. The play area is open every day, weather permitting, and tickets are available from the box office.
