Live music & entertainment come to Workington, Saturday 17 November ‘Tributes and Tunes’. More here.

Workington’s long history is proudly on show in Curwen Park, where the
picturesque ruin of Curwen Hall can be enjoyed. It’s a fine place to
wile away some time on a sunny day. Leaving the park leads you to the
Helena Thompson Museum, a fine looking Georgian, Grade II listed house.
Its collection consists of costume and textiles; antiques and curios;
family possessions; portraits and domestic chattels dating from the
second half of the eighteenth century The collection has grown,
with a broadening of the scope to include industries, and domestic and
commercial life in the later nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

As the main town in Allerdale, Workington has a well designed, pedestrianised shopping area in the centre of the town. It features major high street brands and is a good retail day out.

Your cultural and entertainment needs are well served with a range of facilities.. In addition to the interesting Helena Thompson Museum, the Carnegie Theatre and Arts Centre’s programme of concerts, plays and shows in an Edwardian theatre, with a daytime cafe and live gigs in Monroe’s bar is a must visit in the town centre.



Entertainment continues at the Plaza Cinemas multiplex and Eclipse Ten Pin Bowling and if murder mystery is your thing, don’t miss Lakes Escapes.

The Theatre Royal features a wide range of plays; highlights this year include Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Brassed Off and during the festive season, A Christmas Carol. A Chillfest (June), continental food market (August) and Decades music festival (May) can also be enjoyed in the town centre.
