Christine Slater

I grew up in West Cumberland but moved away to go to college and eventually ended up in Glasgow, where I was a researcher at the University for many years. Glasgow was where I developed a taste for live theatre and music, and I particularly enjoy them in smaller venues.

When I retired, I returned to West Cumbria and bought a house in Maryport near the harbour and started attending film and music nights at The Kirkgate. I am a great supporter of the Arts Out West rural touring scheme and facilitated the Maryport Settlement becoming a venue in 2021. My other great passions are hill walking and environmental conservation.
