Not swimming in the Great North Swim but still coming to the Lakes? Read this!

Filed under Uncategorized

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.

    Mintfest sounds like so much fun! I wish we were coming this weekend instead.

    There’s always next year, Louise! The 2011 dates for Mintfest have been announced and we do currently have availability for that week.

    There are some interesting events year round in Kendal – have a look at http://www.breweryarts.co.uk which is one of the main arts venues and hopefully you might something of interest to co-incide with your visit.
