For the last 12 years, we have been honoured to work with a team that has breathed life into Kendal Calling year after year, creating dreams and memories for us all.

We thought it was about time we gave them center stage with this series of images taken this year by Elspeth Mary-Moore.

Thank you to all the Kendal Calling family involved through the years*. Meeting up with the team on site is the highlight of our season and we’ve made so many new friends along the way.

And thank you to all our Kendal Callers for giving us the motivation to improve year on year and bring the hills and valleys of the Lakes alive with the sound of KC!

See you in the fields x

*PS Sorry we couldn’t all get on here, you know who you are!
