We’re in the May 2012 issue of Cumbria Life

Filed under Uncategorized

There’s an article in next month’s Cumbria Life, the local glossy magazine for Cumbria, about the design and furnishing of holiday accommodation, and I’m pleased to report we got a brief mention in the article.  If you’d like to have a read, you can do so by clicking here.  Some of you may recall we were featured with a full page in the same publication back in November 2010.  That earlier article can be found here (thought the pictures in that one aren’t all that flattering!).

You’ll find a great choice of brands such as Salomon, Asolo, Marmot, Lowa, Jack Wolfskin, La Sportiva, Montane, Eider and adidas Terrex. The Kendal store is the first to launch and there are some fantastic opening offers to be had, including a chance to win £200 of mountain gear just by signing up for their newsletter, and a free Marmot Grab Bag with every Marmot purchase.

Life begins at 40 for the Brewery Arts Centre

Filed under Uncategorized

2012 marks the 40th anniversary of Kendal’s Brewery Arts Centre. Over the past four decades the arts centre has established its position as one of the most innovative and vibrant venues of its kind in the UK.  The celebrations begin on 12th May, 40 years to the day since the building was officially opened as an arts centre, with an exhibition charting the Brewery over the last four decades. They will also launch an appeal to raise funds to improve their customer facilities and equip them to deliver great service in the future.

And over the Summer they are hosting a special Summer Sunday and the Youth Arts department will celebrate its part in the Brewery’s story with a special Platform event on 29th and 30th June.

Finally, in the Autumn the Brewery will present a memorable programme of performances, events and exhibitions to celebrate their birthday, focused around special commissions which will explore the achievements of the Brewery’s past by creating new work for the future.

A little Lake District inspiration

Filed under Uncategorized

If you needed a little inspiration as to why the Lake District is such a wonderful area to visit (shame on you if you did!), then look no further than this collection of panoramic images posted on The Guardian’s website last week.  The pictures are stunning and courtesy of the photographer Alastair Lee who has compiled a series of fantastic images in his new book, Lake District Mountain Landscape, published by Frances Lincoln and available from Amazon.
