July events: See huge headliners at Kendal Calling

Penrith, Cumbria

Kendal Calling is the most fun you can have in the countryside with fields full of activities and attractions.

Started in 2006 by a group of music lovers, Kendal Calling has gone on to win awards and become one of the highlights of the year in the Lake District.

Putting aside the world class music line-up for a second, there are a number of attractions on offer including a children’s area, a real ale festival, and the Happy Slap Boutique for weird, surreal shows and much more.

Of course, the music is also a vital part of Kendal Calling's lineup. The Courteeners, Tom Jones and Nile Rodgers & Chic are headlining this year's festival, with a full supporting bill to be announced too.

Need a break from the music? Retreat to the aptly-named Garden of Eden for a back, foot and shoulder massage, or even a spot of yoga. Festivalgoers looking for a little luxury should book into the Deer Lodge area of the site – take your pick from Bell Tents, Tipis, Yurts and Podpads.

This year's Kendal Calling festival takes place between 30 July and 2 August in Lowther Deer Park.
