Returning for our seventh year over the weekend of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2020, Kendal Wool Gathering mixes a wool market, demonstrations, fun activities and displays, all connected to the cloth on which the town’s wealth was built.

It's a fun, educational and, above all, family-friendly festival, that's not to be missed!

Some exhibitors give demonstrations, some let you try your hand, but all are friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic. There's also walks, talks and 'knit and natter' groups to keep you entertained.

Also, outside there will be livestock, where you can meet a variety of sheep and Llamas, whilst learning about the important Lake District sheep farming industry.
