September
Woodland Trust

Our friends from the Woodland Trust will be joining us here at the railway for two weekends in September and October, raising awareness of the fantastic work that they are doing, as well as providing activities to complete on your day out!

Stop by their stall at Dalegarth on the weekends of the 3rd of September and the 8th of October and chat to the team about everything they’ve got going on and their membership opportunities.

Light up Scafell Pike

Do you want to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience on Scafell Pike?

Looking for a physical and creative challenge? Then join this Green Space Dark Skies finale event.

Your help will make a stunning, light-based artwork on one of the four highest mountains in the UK – the results of which will be broadcast as part of a one-hour BBC1 Countryfile Special in the autumn.

It’s free to take part, on your own or with a group.

If you can give your time, your energy and your creativity – you’re promised an enormously enriching experience that you’ll never forget.

Stand & Deliver
Rosehill Theatre
Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven CA28 6SE, UK

Whitehaven Theatre Group take you on a ‘behind the scenes’ look into the world of the maternity ward in this Janet Shaw farce, Stand & Deliver. Join sex-mad nurse Lindsay Walker, and the four ladies on C Ward. The patients are: Vivien Withrington whose husband forgot to pay the private health insurance; Lizzie who has been caught out in the change of life; Nicola who gets confused easily and whose baby will have to match the soft furnishings in her house, and Michelle, whose only mistake was drinking alcopops and being 16. Three of these four have the husbands they deserve, who each tries to help his wife during the last few hours before ‘the big push’ in the only way they know best – by being a man, and either not being there or retiring as often as possible to the TV Room. Michelle, though, has her mum – a domineering matriarch who is desperate that the baby is adopted to prevent the shame of having to reveal that her daughter is an unmarried mother. The delivery rooms are full and so Vivien (who insisted on delivering in the birthing pool at the private ‘Fairhomes’ nursing home) and Nicola have to deliver in their beds on the ward, during which Sister Mitchell and Nurse Walker show their compassionate side. Through all this, the two domestics (Dot and Brenda) provide a down-to-earth patter of comfort to the labouring mothers, and barbed wit to the hospital staff. It may sound like an unlikely setting for a comedy play, but Janet Shaw has a talent for turning the most incongruous situation and poking fun at it, or the people in it. A side-splitting comedy that will leave you in stitches… from laughing.

Kirkgate Arts
The Gather Ennerdale
Ennerdale Bridge, Cleator CA23 3AR, UK

Dan and Boff decided to run a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking the city.

In story and in song, this is the story of what they found out – about the relationship between city and country, between wild and controlled, about land ownership, about why we’re drawn to wild places – and about what we’re really running from.

Funny and genuinely moving, These Hills are Ours consists of stories by Dan and songs by Boff, interspersed with conversation between them, and with the audience. The stories and songs each tell of a particular running route and its significance. It is at once gentle and raw, delicate and robust. This show is for the ‘good night out’ audience – warm, funny, friendly, and combining songs and stories – it is a celebration of place and local pride and changing our perspective when we get just outside our town and look at it from that beautiful green hill not so far away.

Show length: Approx 80 minutes
