Taste Cumbria Kirkby Lonsdale
The first Taste Cumbria Kirkby Lonsdale festival was a huge success – and plans are being made to return to the town in 2018. Traders sold out in the producers market, the Royal Barn venue was packed with visitors to the beer festival, and the town’s streets were thronged with shoppers and visitors. The demonstrations and children’s activities in the Lonsdale Hall were also hugely popular, with a constant stream of visitors passing by.
Event organiser Mandy Norwood of CN Events said: “It was an absolute pleasure bringing Taste Cumbria to Kirkby Lonsdale. The local people and businesses were so welcoming and it was great to see how many of them set up stalls in the producers’ market. “The feedback from visitors has been lovely. People really appreciate quality local food and drink and that becomes more evident with every festival we do.
This has been a brilliant launch for Taste Cumbria in 2017 and I’m really looking forward to Ulverston at the end of May, then Whitehaven and Cockermouth later in the year. These events just get better and better.”
