Festival Crowd Header

Kendal Calling is turning 10! As the festival gears up to celebrate ten years in the fields of the beautiful Lake District, this year’s theme has been appropriately revealed as ‘Kendal Calling Goes Through The Decades’.

Festival revellers are invited to join a party ten years in the making and help make this year the best yet. Kendal Callers are challenged to dress up as a character from their favourite decade. Will you be a 1920's flapper, 60s hippy, 70s dancing queen, 80s metal-head, or a 90's popster? Heroes, pop stars, villains and icons of film are all set to unite for a blast from the past as Kendal marks a very special birthday.

This year Kendal Calling are looking for creative souls with bold ideas to become part of the rich tapestry of entertainment at the festival. The festival is inviting independent artists, walkabout performers, comedians, book authors, film makers, venue decor, workshops, dance classes, games, crafts, poets, kids activities & eccentrics to come and get involved at the tenth birthday spectacular!

Ben Robinson, Director says 

"As we turn 10 we’re opening the gates to a new wave of party starters and we are looking for fresh, fun, bright and bold ideas! 

Are you the life and soul of your scene? Have you been cooking up some crazy capers that could live in the fields? What amazing feat of your imagination could you build this summer? Got some tricks up your sleeve that the Kendal Callers would love? 

Let us know and we could see you in the fields!"
