Schools

Join us!

Although the format of this year’s event is quite different from previous years, we still want schools to get involved and enter into the Kendal Torchlight Garden of Delights.

You should have received an entry pack delivered to your school which includes an invitation to enter, a how to enter flyer and summer programme flyers.

Schools Entry Flyer

Summer Programme Flyer

This year, the main participatory even will be taking place on Saturday, in the day time, without a long walk around a parade route. Your entry will be showcased in “The Dell” a performance space in Abbot Hall park, where you can bring your group to show off costumes, dance, sing, perform and accompany a wheelbarrow float too!

Stalls are also available for schools who would like to showcase any projects or work they are doing to support the community, protect our planet or raise awareness of the environment.

It is a great opportunity to find out all about the new format for this year, ask us questions and find out how to enter.

"Making your entry" Surgeries

In September we will be hosting 3 FREE entries surgeries at Rag Tag Community Scrap Store.

Book your place and come along to find out how you can enter, get ideas, source materials and ask any questions you may have about how it all works.

The surgeries are taking place on:

Thursday 2nd September 4pm-6pm

Tuesday 7th September 4pm-6pm

Saturday 11th September 10am-4pm

The first 30 schools to apply, will receive a free trolley of materials from the scrap store to use on their float or costumes.
