Info for visiting Theatre Companies -


The OLD LAUNDRY THEATRE Bowness-on-Windermere is pleased to announce that in line with its continuing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint we are changing our lantern stock from  incandescent halogen lamps to colour changing light emitting diode. The energy use reduction we anticipate coupled with our recent solar panel installation is part of our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our day to day operation.

We are at present installing our new infrastructure which will give us full management and control of our new lantern stock and are looking forward to the advantages in lighting design this will offer.

Because of these changes we can no longer accommodate incandescent lantern stock from visiting companies, although we will maintain a small 6 channel dimmer pack for practicals and specials.

Those companies who have in the past been kind enough to bring their own show file for our etc desk will be pleased to know that we are updating that too and we are staying with etc as our preferred supplier.

A full list of our new lantern stock will be available on our website.

This is a big change for us and it will mean that for most of our visitors we will need to program your cues from scratch. If you have specific requirements for lighting (or sound) please relay them to us as soon as possible. We can supply you a grid diagram, photos or video of the space if you wish.

We pride ourselves on being “show ready” for you when you arrive and with your cooperation we will continue to be so.

Thank You.
