KENDAL CALLING 2009
Come 2009, Lowther Deer Park became the new home. It was an ideal spot for party animals, considering it was once a wildlife theme park. Surrounded by 2,000 trees and Henry VIII’s deer, Mumford & Sons, The Streets, Ash and Zutons saw Cumbria’s hills bouncing to outrageously good tunes while revellers threw themselves down a ski slope with 80 tonnes of snow. Things aren’t done by halves at Kendal Calling. 2009 was also the year that the legendary Cumbrian Olympics was born, where only the funniest survive.
