Kendal Torchlight Carnival 2018

Kendal Torchlight Carnival 2018


The Kendal Torchlight procession 2017 takes place on Friday 14th September, with the Kendal Street Party on Saturday 15th September.

Kendal’s Torchlight Carnival is one of a kind. Each year crowds of people, Kendalians and visitors alike, line the streets to watch the procession, which involves local businesses, schools, organisations and clubs. From decorated floats and all manner of vehicles, to dancing troups and marching musicians, it’s always so much fun to see what our creative community has come up with each year.

The Kendal Torchlight Carnival starts from K Village at 7.30pm and then follows a set route to loops round Kendal town centre. The procession will then finish back at Kendal Leisure Centre. Many roads in an around the town centre will be closed to vehicles from around 7pm, after this time no access will be available in or out of the town centre. The procession will finish around 10pm with all roads re-opening shortly after.

The theme of Kendal Torchlight 2018 is ‘Books & Authors’.

‘Books and Authors’ will allow imaginations to run wild. From literary classics to more modern favourites we hope to see a really wide selection of entries this year.
