WE’RE giving away 4 band kits, each worth over £1000.

SCHOOLS, COLLEGES AND COMMUNITY GROUPS ARE INVITED TO ENTER OUR COMPETITION TO SUPPORT MUSIC IN CUMBRIA. YOU MIGHT HAVE A FUTURE KENDAL CALLING HEADLINER IN YOUR MIDSTS – THEY JUST NEED THE TOOLS! THE KITS INCLUDE DRUMS, GUITARS, AMPS AND A PA, AND A WHOLE HOST OF ACCESSORIES TO GET YOU STARTED.

We’re immensely proud of our Cumbrian roots at Kendal Calling, and every year we showcase a number of local Cumbrian bands at the festival, so we’re keen to support the local live music scene in every way we can. Music in schools has a big part to play in that and community groups can use music in lots of amazing ways to give people a chance to express themselves.
