Magical stories in The Lake District

The Gypsy Caravan Theatre arrived in the Lakes with no show to speak of.

 The families of Kendal Calling took part in the workshops and made beautiful, funny and creative shows that they performed on the little wagon stage. Despite the rain and mud imaginations were brought to life and Mum, Dads, Grandparents, Children, Friends and Carers surprised them selves in performed their little shows to the public. Hooray for them!! What a lovely weekend.
