Summer Fun in Kendal

One of three beautiful umbrella displays in Kendal all linked with the summer trails

Kendal BID has long wanted to get people to ‘rediscover’ Kendal, locals and tourists do not always take advantage of the many hidden gems that lay within Kendal Town. Adding to the successful Rediscover Kendal Day in September 2016, we teamed up with Felltarn Friends to provide a number of fantastic trails that would get people walking round and rediscovering Kendal whilst having fun. The Kids trails have things to do on the back with word searches, colouring in and lots of other things to discover. We have also provided free Kendal branded pencils that emphasise the new website and the kendal gift card.

The Umbrella Display’s are located in Wainwrights Yard, Elephant Yard and Westmorland Shopping Centre, every member of the public that has commented on the displays has done so positively.

There are 4 amazing childrens trails (click here) and click here) and (click here and here)and a historic trail (click here and here) and last but not least a boozy trail, showing the best of Kendal’s night time economy (click here and here).

Over a hundred businesses are participating, many offering Trail Treats, from sweets, to high fives to great value discounts! In just over 1 week over 6000 trails have been handed out. That’s 6000 families and individuals actively walking around the town and looking in your business. Trails have been distributed to a number of collection points including Windermere TIC and all the major hotels in the area.

The trails run until mid September and take in the Torchlight carnival and also Lakes Alive, 12000 more are due to arrive on Friday, but people can also download them from the new BID funded website.
We also linked the Kendal Gift Card to the trails offering Gift Card prizes throughout the summer.
