  • Kendal Poetry Festival 2022
    We are thrilled to be running our first hybrid Kendal Poetry Festival in 2022 - with all events taking place in the heart of Kendal and on your screen! In its fifth year, the festival will welcome some of the most exciting poets and artists we could find throughout the UK - and beyond. We'll be hosting the extraordinary Painting the Poets exhibition by Clae Eastgate, and introducing our first Children's Poetry Strand with a full day of events for younger audiences. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in our open mics, workshops and daily writing hours. If you've been to previous festivals, we hope we can tempt you back with this year's programme. If this is your first time, we look forward to meeting you - whether virtually or in-person! Please visit the festival website for full details on the programme. Prices for this event vary, some events are free but others have a fee attached.

  • Eleven Days In May
    Cinema | (18) | 85 minutes | 23rd June 20:30 Over the course of 11 days in May 2021, more than 60 children were killed in Gaza. They should never be forgotten. Narrated by Kate Winslet and with music by Max Richter, this film is a diary of those days. Through archive and personal testimony, the film tells the story of each child as an individual boy or girl, with much the same hopes and dreams and ambitions of children everywhere. Narrated by Kate Winslet, with music by Max Richter, Eleven Days In May is a simple memorial to the children who lost their lives. Their families remember their sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, their hopes and dreams and ambitions. Presented in partnership with Amnesty Group Kendal

  Recurring events in this month
  • It's Hot it's Not
    This surreal, funny and carefully crafted physical performance explores the weather in all its forms from summer to autumn, winter to spring and takes delight in discovering the world anew and how we experience it differently, wherever we are.
  • Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s) plus Recorded QandA
    Cinema | (PG) | 89 minutes | 11th June 16:30 Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts is a unique and inventive feature documentary about the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Directed by the late, great and much celebrated Roger Michell (Notting Hill, The Duke) and produced by prolific British producer Kevin Loader (Nowhere Boy, The Lady in the Van), Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts is a nostalgic, uplifting and fresh modern chronicle of the extraordinary 70-year reign of Her Majesty the Queen, the longest-lived, longest-reigning British monarch and longest-serving female head of state in history.
