Kendal Calling has grown from an unknown gathering to an internationally recognised independent festival and one with the most sought after festival tickets in the UK selling out every year.
Experience is at the heart of Kendal Calling. Outside of the music Kendal Calling offers an array of luxury and boutique camping, a wide selection of the finest local real ales, bespoke cocktail bars, immersive woodland art installations, children’s activities and performance art, comedy, cinema and theatre.
With thousands of guests spending their weekend at Kendal Calling, Little Bird markets wants to work with traders to develop a farmers market that is a strong addition to the festival. This is a food based market with only ten curated pitches. We are particularly looking for a bread, cheese, fresh meats, pies, scotch eggs, oils, confectionery, biscuits, pasta, olive traders and items which would fit a picnic environment are all welcome to apply.
Please note that this festival is glass free so alternatives would need to be used. The farmers market will be inside a wooden structure called the Travelling Barn which can be viewed at www.thetravellingbarn.co.uk Alongside the market will be an artisan bar, surrounded by a picnic area and facing the stage. The Travelling Barn has appeared at Bestival, Camp Bestival, Glade, Glastonbury Festival, Festival No. 6 and the Secret Garden Party to name but a few.
We will only take applications from traders who can evidence that the can trade large events and have the stock to carry. If you’re an artisan trader and would like to be considered for a stall, please get in touch.
