4 Can't Miss Events in October

Graham Hadaway - Wednesday, September 23, 2015

With winter slowly encroaching on Lake Windermere, transforming Bowness from bustling tourist trap to romantic destination, the scope and type of events on offer throughout the area change too. Here are a variety of unique options available during your stay in October.


Try Rock Climbing 3-4th October

If you want to get out and be active while here with us, an 'introduction to rock climbing' course is being held just ten minutes away in Langdale.


This two day introduction covers the basics of rock climbing such as tying on to rope, movement skills, and abseiling, and is perfect for beginners with lots of enthusiasm to try something new. With some of the best climbing in the country, why not take full advantage of the Lake District while you’re here?


Sample a Taste of Townend 8th October

Townend was the historic home to the Browne’s - a farming family who were a cornerstone of the village of Troutbeck. This traditional stone and slate Lake District farmhouse is much more than meets the eye however, and once inside you’ll find an atmospheric house filled with all kinds of quirks and stories.


Every Thursday, the Townend house comes to life and is filled with smells and tastes direct from Elizabeth Browne’s handwritten 17th century recipe book, giving visitors a unique taste of the past.


Watch Waiting for Godot 14th October

If you want to take in some culture while visiting the Cranleigh, the Brewery Arts Centre in nearby Kendal is showing Waiting for Godot live from the London Classic Theatre. This one off event, shown on the big screen, tells the story of a pair of travellers waiting on a country road for the mysterious man named Godot. Written by Samuel Beckett, the play is held in high regard around the globe and isn’t to be missed.


Visit the Lakes International Comic Festival 16-18th October

Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand, you’ll have noticed the extent that comic book adaptations have overrun the world in recent years.


Entering its third year, the Lakes International Comic Festival takes over the nearby town of Kendal and transforms the town into a hub of all things sequential art. Talks are held at the Brewery Arts Centre by some of the biggest names in the industry, while the town’s Clock Tower holds a variety of stalls and competitions. One for the geek in you!
