The Tim Peaks Diner is the brainchild of The Charlatans’ frontman, Tim Burgess and is one of the most interesting areas of any festival in the world. Anything goes at Tim Peaks. He’s hosted acoustic sets from Nick Hayward, Edwin Collins & Pete Doherty as well as serving up his own ‘Totes Amazeballs’ cereal. There will be tea, DJs, book readings, mayhem and all manner of spontaneous happenings. Definitely pay this corner of Kendal a visit.
