The Cumbria LEP were delighted to be invited to a VIP behind the scenes tour during Kendal Calling alongside Westmorland and Furness County Council representatives.

This year 40,000 people gathered in the fields at Lowther Deer Park near Penrith, being the most successful year yet, creating what became Cumbria’s third largest town for one weekend only.

Naomi Morgan, Skills Bootcamp Manager at Cumbria LEP said:

“Our behind the scenes tour was a fascinating insight into the festival infrastructure.

Kendal Calling is a huge asset for the businesses and people in Cumbria and surrounding areas. Cumbria is a fantastic place to live and work which Kendal Calling helps to promote, positively welcoming young people and families.

Kendal Calling supports local charities, arts projects and the Cumbrian business community. Organisers understand the beauty of our area and promotes festival goers to ‘leave nothing but memories’. I look forward to seeing how this positive, inclusive and intergenerational event continues to thrive.”

Shelley Wilkinson, Executive Assistant at Cumbria LEP said:

“I wanted to extend our thanks to Andy and Cathryn for their warm hospitality and fascinating behind the scenes tour at Kendal Calling. It was a fantastic experience, and we appreciate the opportunity they provided for us.

Seeing all of the hard work and effort that goes into organising the festival was eye-opening, and it only deepened our interest in the growth plans of Kendal Calling.”

Cumbria LEP will be working with the team behind Kendal Calling over the coming months to see how we can support them to deliver further value to the Cumbrian economy through their work in 2024.
