Kendal Wool Gathering
Weaving, spinning, felting, knitting – this weekend a community of wool lovers will descend upon Kendal Leisure Centre to celebrate all things wool. The festival is returning for its fifth year over this weekend of Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th October 2017. And it is set to be bigger than ever!
The gathering will include demonstrations, fun activities and displays. With stands and stalls representing all aspects of commercial wool products.
Kendal Wool Gathering is a not-for-profit event, organised by volunteers and this is the first year the festival will take place at the Leisure Centre, having outgrown it’s previous home. Entry to the festival costs £1.
Head down to the Wool Gathering this weekend and celebrate the cloth on which the town’s wealth was built! Don’t forget to get involved in this year’s Pop Up Poppy installation too.
Beer & Gin Festival
If you love a fine ale The Factory Tap is the place to be this weekend.
From 26th – 29th October, they are holding their second beer festival with over 60 fantastic beers lined up including 16 of the best beers from the Westmorland area. This great Kendal venue will also be hosting Thai Kitchen for the weekend so you can expect a range of delicious Thai food.
