Kendal – The Place To Be For Fun This June
Although Kendal is a bustling market town and rarely quiet, it seems June 2016 is set to be a bumper month for events and festivals in and around it.
Starting with the first weekend of the month June 2nd and 3rd with Country Fest 2018 on the Westmorland Country Show field at Crooklands. At Country Fest enjoy all things outdoor, county and country, food and farming. All this will be showcased alongside entertainment, dog show, food and craft stalls. New for 2018, Flowers North West with creative flower displays and the McClures food theatre with demos and advice from numerous chefs including 2018 MasterChef finalist Moonira Hinglotwala. Another highlight for all vintage lovers, the WI Marquee celebrated Inspirational Women and the Vintage Revival Marquee with tea room. All the favourites will be back Discover Farming, Pets Corner and the Poultry and Rabbit Show, the famous dog show plus Donkey Rides and the Kite Festival. It’s definitely an event for the whole family and a great day or full weekend out.
Two weeks later (June 16th and 17th) on the Country Show field once again, the CumbriaVAG Show & Shine Festival. A 2 day festival to satisfy any car nut and especially anyone with a VW or Audi. There’s DJ’s and music on Saturday night with Sunday’s highlight being the Volkswagon Car Show. Simply attend and wander around the pristine cars old and new or enter your car into the show.
Moving back into the centre of Kendal town and yet more to enjoy with music, comedy and art and theatre. Look out for the end of June, the 30th for the monthly comedy night and it’s a special one with hilarious stand-up from Alun Cochrane, Matt Stellingwerf and Andy Robinson.
