Keswick Film Festival

2 & 3 March

We are delighted to be part of the annual Keswick Film Festival. David Miller who programmes the Festival has chosen some amazing films for Rheged including Four Daughters (a 2023 official selection at Cannes Film Festival) and visually breath-taking The Taste of Things.

You can catch the x4 or x5 Stagecoach bus from Keswick to Rheged for just £2, with the films scheduled to tie in with bus times.

Tickets are available to buy for individual screenings or make a weekend of it with a weekend pass.

Four Daughters
