Watch the first in a series of videos by Kendal people previewing the forthcoming Lakes Alive festival which arrives next month.

Lakes Alive will erupt with noise and colour four weeks tonight (Friday 8 September).

Thanks to our star Thuline De Cock from Thuline for giving her time and enthusiasm.

Thuline attended Jacobs Join last year and will be bringing her family along this year.

Jacobs Join is a community get-together of food, drink, music and merriment.

Bring your own foodie delights or buy delicious produce from our specially chosen vendors.  

Music will be provided by Worldbeaters Spark! and Cumbrian group Mazurka.

We invite you to this brilliant community dining experience which kicks off the Lakes Alive weekend.

More videos to come!
