Kendal Wool Gathering has a new venue for 2017; Kendal Leisure Centre.

We are taking over two floors of the Leisure Centre, so this year's Gathering will be bigger than ever! Downstairs you will find the Wool Market in the Westmorland Hall with a wide range of exhibitors selling and displaying lots wool related crafts. There are more stalls and Wool Gallery art displays elsewhere on the ground floor. Outside we will have the Westmorland Agricultural Society's livestock marquee and food stalls.

Upstairs there are even more exhibitors in our other Wool Rooms, more art and even a Knit and Natter area!

It's just 5 minutes from our previous venue of K Village, so if you've been before it'll be easy enough to find! If you've never visited previously, then full directions are available here.
