The Kirkgate Centre
“In terms of the arts the Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth is where it all happens” – Cumbria Life
The Kirkgate was converted from the former derelict All Saints School through the hard work and help of local people, charities and businesses. It is Cockermouth’s main arts venue with an exhibition space and 125 seat theatre/cinema.
Managed and run entirely by volunteers and supported by over 200 members, it has a varied and exciting programme attracting many nationally acclaimed theatre groups and high quality musical events. The cinema group strives to show a wide range of films from the successful and popular to the less mainstream, notable and interesting films that international cinema has to offer.
The Kirkgate is located just off Cockermouth’s Market Place, only 2 minutes walk from the town centre.
