Revealing Kids Calling for Kendal Calling 2019

We’re excited to reveal an abundance of family-friendly entertainment for those mini Kendal Callers, incorporating our theme; Kendal Calling goes Jurassic!

Little ones can crawl, hop or fly to the Kids Calling area anytime throughout the weekend for arts & crafts, theatre performances and workshops galore! Get creative with the Re-Psych Project and create Ice Age costumes and pasta-saurus pictures in their hands-on sessions, get tots dancing at the daily discos and ancient movement and fire workshops, or if you’re feeling more energetic join in with the Triceratoss hoopla, Dino egg and spoon races and more.

Plus, don’t miss the DINO VILLAGE on Saturday afternoon – get involved in Jurassic-inspired games, face painting, art and crafts, competitions and general silliness, with our host of friendly activity leaders.

A Jurassic weekend packed full of entertainment suitable for all the family, where all ages, generations and families come together for an unmissable weekend!
