Something magical is about to happen in Kirkby Lonsdale. 

The town will come alight with festive cheer for the three day Christmas Fair.on December 6th-8th. 

Santa will be dropping in on his sleigh each day at 2pm to lead the procession. He'll then go to his new grotto in the ginnel by the bookshop which will be decorated as a Harry Potter set. 

The parade on Saturday and Sunday will be the usual exciting mix of floats, bands and sleigh; look out for the netball teams with hoop halos. 

The fabulous Batala drumming band will once again entertain the crowds and they will be joined by other bands and buskers throughout the weekend including blues bands, choirs, saxophonists and even an opera singer. 

There'll be a chalet village in the market square on Friday night 4-8pm and all day Saturday and Sunday, plus the Lunesdale Hall will be filled with gift and food stalls on Saturday and Sunday, with a free park and ride at the Rugby Club on Friday night 4.30-8pm and Saturday and Sunday 10-5pm.

Kirkby Lonsdale Summer Ball 2018

Kirkby Lonsdale is a small and relatively unspoilt market town situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Flanking the three counties of Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire as it does the town offers a tranquil and picturesque base from which to explore the English Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. Kirkby Lonsdale itself is a historic, quaint market town with a growing reputation for high quality independent shopping (it was runner-up in the 2016 Great British High Street Awards), as well as excellent restaurants, cafés and bars and superb accommodation.

The Town is notably home to the 14th century Devil's Bridge, as well as Ruskin's View, which inspired a painting by artist JMW Turner in 1822, and poet John Ruskin to declare ‘I do not know in all my country, still less in France or Italy, a place more naturally divine.’

With so much to see and do in the area, you can choose to keep yourself busy or perhaps simply relax and enjoy the peace and beauty that Kirkby Lonsdale has to offer. Whatever you are looking for, we hope to help you discover your Kirkby Lonsdale.
