Things to do in May, in the Lake District

Jo Spencer - Monday, April 11, 2016

We’re heading towards warmer months and the Lake District is becoming busier and busier. With the prospect of more enjoyable outdoor activities (without rain!), we predict that visitors will be heading for hills this summer. If climbing’s not your thing however, there’s plenty more going on across the region. Here’s our pick of the best…


Cumbria Life sausage festival at Muncaster Castle:


One for the foodies! Join in the fun and celebrate the great Cumberland Sausage! Sponsored by Cumbria Life magazine, this is a weekend of food and drink, demos and competitions, gifts and crafts, entertainment and fun over the bank holiday. There are the competitions such as the 2016 ‘Favourite Butchers Cumberland Sausage Competition’; plus entertainment and celebrity chefs - TV Chef Peter Sidwell is joining the event again! There will also be children’s crafts and face painting!

On ‘yer bike with the Fred Whitton Challenge:


The famous Fred Whitton Challenge is a cycle challenge starting and finishing in Grasmere and covering 112 gruelling miles around the Lake District National Park. More than 2500 participants from all over the country will be taking part in this one day event. Whether you’re participating, or merely out to spectate, it’s a great fun day and very much a part of the Lake District calendar.

Freerange comedy festival:


The freerange comedy festival takes place at the Brewery Arts centre in Kendal, with some pretty famous faces turning out to cause a few chuckles! The festival will welcome the likes of Al Murray, Jack Dee, Comedy Club 4 Kids, Jason Manford, Jimmy Carr, Josie Long and Lee Evans!

The Keswick Jazz Festival:


The Keswick Jazz Festival displays the very best of vintage, swing, blues and hot jazz, returning for Keswick Jazz Festival’s 25th year. Top bands – both established and new - will bring to life the music that evolved in New Orleans a century ago and took the world by storm. With more than 90 events across four packed days, from intimate concerts in the town, to show-stopping performances at Theatre by the Lake, there’s bound to be plenty for all!
