What a time to visit the Lake District. It’s the summer holidays and a staycation has never been so appealing. It is also a very special year for region, the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter. Not only can visitors enjoy the beautiful Lake District but also be entertained with events and activities galore to celebrate one of the most famous children’s authors.
An absolute must thing to do this summer is go and watch the very special production “Where is Peter Rabbit?” Based on the original tales by Beatrix Potter the show features voices of Mirium Margoyles and Griff Rhys Jones with music by Steven Edis and lyrics by Alan Ayckbourn.
