Rosehill Theatre, on the hills above Whitehaven, opened in 1959 and is one of the UK's most intimate theatres offering a diverse range of arts and entertainment from music, theatre, talks, comedy, shows for young people and more. We have ample free car and coach parking, a licensed bar and provide great food and drink. From our position, there are stunning views over the Solway Firth to Scotland and inland to the Lake District. A truly exceptional setting.
The theatre has a small number of permanent staff and is supported by over 30 volunteers. Rosehill Theatre is subsidised by Rosehill Arts Trust Limited, a non-profit making organisation and a registered charity, which receives grants from Arts Council England, Copeland Borough Council and Cumbria County Council, as well as financial support from sponsors, trusts and through individual giving.
