Assuming they’ve checked their email, participants in this year’s Great North Swim will have already received the rather disappointing news that this weekend’s swim won’t be taking place. Many visitors for the swim will hopefully still come to the area, though – or may already even have arrive – and I just want them to be aware of a great event taking place in Kendal. It probably won’t make up for the disappointment but hopefully it will be an enjoyable substitute.
Mintfest is described as “an exhilirating kaleidoscope of the very best contemporary international street arts. The event is generally regarded as one of the UK’s leading street festivals and will include everything from street performers to dancers to circus performers… and lots more!
It won’t be quite the weekend you’d planned, but it’ll still be a lot of fun.
