The Best of Kendal Calling 2013

Posted by Linsey Oxfam Fashion blogger

2nd Aug 2013

Kendal Calling has been and gone but not forgotten, set in the beautiful Lake District at Lowther Deer Park. The event was a diverse mix of music, art, installations, kids activities, hula hooping and temperamental weather, of course. The Oxfam Festival Shop was on hand to make sure that all fashion needs were satisfied and the shop team worked through rain and shine to make the weekend a memorable one for all. Here's some of the highlights...


The Oxfam Festival Shop was full of everything from the super stylish to the more practical items. There was vintage, fancy dress, wellies, waterproofs, accessories and more. The shop was headed by the fabulous Fran Tutt.


Everyone made a real effort with their outfits on site, ranging from festival chic, fancy dress to fun. Whatever people were wearing they kept it chic and unique. You can see a selection of the outfits above.


There was a diverse musical selection on the many stage spanning across the site, ranging from hip hop, indie, jazz, dance and more with something for everyone. The tipple taxi kept it small and intimate while the woodland area was full of mushrooms and dinosaur egg installations perfect for chilling out.


The site played host to many different stages, musical tastes and interests throughout the weekend. You were never too far away from good music, food or a fairground and if it all got too much then there was space to just sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings. There were retail outlets, hula hooping, giant gingerbread house, compost toilets with graffiti doors, beautiful decoration, fairy lights and more, making Kendal Calling a festival to remember.
