Join us for the full Festival weekend or extend your stay and explore the beauty of the Lake District.

Our hostel at the Dojo, and our camper-van spots at the Dojo are now open for bookings with a special early bird rate, limited space so book now to avoid disappointment.

We will also be hosting campervans at the Leisure Centre again in 2019 and tickets will be on sale towards the end of August so watch this space.

There is a great selection of accommodation options within walking distance to our Festival including friendly guest houses and fancy hotels, for details on local accommodation head to the Visit Kendal website.

Accommodation in town quickly fills up over the Festival weekend, if you're struggling to find space, why not consider staying in the Lake District National Park and combine our Festival events with exploration of the great outdoors? Heart of the Lakes offer a great selection of holiday cottages within the National Park.

There are also lots of fantastic camping and camper-van opportunities in the Lake District but be prepared for the November weather. 



Like outdoor adventure, attending our Festival can be hungry and thirsty work. We are delighted to continue to expand our offering – with a range of bars and cafes in the Shackleton and Basecamp Tents at the Brewery Arts Centre.

Our Festival takes place in the centre of Kendal and from here we encourage you to explore our bustling town. You’ll find many vibrant places to refuel including casual coffee shops, traditional pubs, cool bars and formal restaurants. Head to the Visit Kendal website to explore the local options and find the perfect place for a refreshing pit-stop during the day or a relaxing drink in the evening.
