CUMBERNAULD THEATRE
What We Do

Working at the heart of our community we are invested in defining our creativity and culture together, in delivering an arts programme that enhances our life, broadens our perspective and nurtures performance arts skills for a creative, innovative, fairer Scotland.

About Lanternhouse

Lanternhouse is a performing arts centre jointly managed by North Lanarkshire Council and Cumbernauld Theatre, a third sector arts charity.

This unique partnership offers creatively independent, professional, performing arts production and programming capacity and grass roots, community embedded, arts engagement, whilst benefitting from the facility management services of the Public Sector. The hybrid model promotes the local sense of community ownership of the venue, whilst ensuring the venue is managed to the high standards of public sector property management.

OUR HISTORY

Our charity started life in 1963 as an informal group of local arts enthusiasts promoting events for Cumbernauld’s newly established town’s folk.

Cumbernauld itself was a new town, perhaps one of the most ambitious modernist designs of the 20th century in the UK and its masterplan represented all kinds of aspirations for a modern way of life.
