CORONAVIRUS UPDATE as at 21 March 2020

In view of the government's current recommendations, and having the health and safety of our users, volunteers and staff as our top priority, we are suspending all performances, screenings and activities until at least the end of April.

We are hoping we might be able to re-schedule some events; but will of course refund payments as appropriate, and will be contacting you directly if you have bought tickets from us.

The situation is developing very rapidly, and we will keep you updated as our longer-term plans evolve.

We've been very gratified by the extremely supportive responses we've received from our audiences and users so far. We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping well; and that by caring for and supporting one another we can find ways through these difficult times.


All best wishes from all at Kirkgate Arts.


Kirkgate Youth Theatre

runs every Thursday evening in term-time.
Two groups, for ages 10 - 14 and 14 - 18.

Hello – welcome to Kirkgate Arts. We run Arts Out West, bringing shows to village halls and other community venues across West Cumbria; and the Kirkgate, the warm and welcoming arts centre and community space in Cockermouth.

We also host the Cockermouth Heritage Group, which discovers and explains the history of the area, with a great collection of objects and documents.

We're part of the Cumbria Family Arts Network and Big Imaginations..
