Not only that but they will be delivered wrapped in a beautiful Christmas card designed specially for us by Woody from British Sea Power. This is a chance to get a Kendal Calling ticket in loved ones stockings before tickets go on general sale in early 2012 (normal price 99).
Kendal Calling is an award winning festival set in the rolling hills of the Lake District, described by many as the Glastonbury of the North; last year played host to headliners Blondie, Chase & Status and the Cribs. With multiple stages and areas, Kendal Calling has something for everyone and is loved by families and groups of friends alike. About more than the music, Kendal Calling revellers love dressing up and flock in their fancies for 3 days of dancing, juggling, contortionists, comedy, site art and much more on top of the world class line up.
The Kendal Calling film crew were working hard in the fields this year, capturing favourite festival memories and the video is now live at www.kendalcalling.com, and whilst you’re there, check out all the lovely revelers at this years event in the photo gallery, enough to warm up our winter mittens for next years festival season.
Also the charity auction is now live! With instruments signed by Kendal Calling headliners under the hammer, bidding began on eBay on Tuesday November 1. The auction will raise money for Cancer Research, Sue Ryder North West, NSPCC, Tiger Awareness and the WWF.
Up for grabs are unique guitars signed by headliners at this years festival. Artists to tag the instruments included Blondie, The Cribs, Levellers, Frank Turner, Craig Charles, Beardyman, Kitty Daisy & Lewis plus many more. Instruments include a bright pink electric guitar signed by legendary New York band Blondie, for more details go to www.kendalgiving.com
