The lively Jacob's Join had set the scene and Kendal was ready to explode with vibrant illuminations, digital delights, intimate performances, amazing installations and spectacular happenings. Our programme had been designed to take you to public spaces and hidden places you may not have seen before. Dolly the giant giraffe led visitors through Kendal to quiet parks and hidden green spaces which came alive with the music of the Manchester Camerata Orchestra and the poetry of the Poetry Takeaway.
Kendal's famous yards proved the perfect places to get creative. Clayground Collective got us stuck into a tonne of modelling clay - and invited us to take a flight of fancy and created birds, bees, butterflies and… well, just about anything we could think off! Artist Ben Dodge let us screen print our own festival bags and t shirts - with his help of course!
The churches of Kendal opened their doors to musicians, poets and artist Luke Jerram's, Museum of the Moon.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the inflated moon featured detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. This truly amazing installation was a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition which left visitors moon struck.
