Romney's Kendal Mint Cake & Kendal Poetry Festival
We are happy to announce that we will once again be sponsoring the Kendal Poetry Festival which is set to launch on Friday 24th June 2022. Kendal Poetry Festival is a bi-annual festival, supported by Arts Council England, which sees people coming to Kendal from across the UK and internationally.
Building on the success of the past two festivals, a ‘Festival Survival Kit’ has been created to distribute to audience members. This will contain a pamphlet (with poems by members of Dove Cottage Young Poets and artwork by our Young Artist in Residence), a Romney's 40g chocolate coated Kendal Mint Cake bar, a tea bag, and a plaster (just in case!).
Kendal Poetry Festival aims to have a local community atmosphere, while celebrating poets of national and international standing, whilst also giving audience members a literal taste of Kendal within the survival kits.
Pictured are photos of last years survival kits, created by poet Katie Hale for Kendal Poetry Festival.
