Feathers and glitter… or a dubiously 1990s tie-dye shirt? Whatever your take on Kendal Calling’s 2016 theme, a Carnival of Colour, you’re cordially invited to join our Saturday afternoon parade across the festival.
Expect a hustling, bustling jaunt through the fields, in hot pursuit of Mr Wilsons Second Liners, the infectious, critically acclaimed 90s rave-come-New Orleans outfit (with great outfits to boot!). This brassy ensemble will lead the Carnival of Colour parade through the fields from the official carnival meeting point, which is outside the cinema at 2pm.
Come one, come all and bring your friends: don’t miss the opportunity to shake a leg all the way up to the Tim Peaks ten. From giant birds to eerily masked wanderers, a host of colourful characters are set to join you as you shimmy through the fields.
We are also offering families free carnival-themed arts and crafts – from musical instrument making to carnival masks and flashing lanterns plus how to sew tutus, headbands and bracelets – all in Kids Calling!
With performances from TV’s Driftwood Bay musicians, circus skills, RockaHulaHoopa, face painting, carnival percussion, Mr Bounce’s extraordinary inflatables, and a different disco theme every evening.
Saturday 2pm outside the cinema. Be there, and be colourful.
