Kirkby Lonsdale

Living Advent Calendar

 

We’re turning Kirkby Lonsdale into a living advent calendar this December! Look around town and you will see the numbers 1-24 (courtesy of pupils from St Mary’s school) in shop windows and at performance locations. Find the number and you will find the event or treat scheduled for that day. It’s that easy! When there’s no specific event programmed there will still be a sweet treat to be had from the lovely local shop displaying that day’s number.

Trail time!

Each number also has a letter on it – find all the letters to spell out a festive greeting. Write the greeting on the entry sheet available from the Information & Gift Shop at The Old Bank, 29 Main Street, and then hand it in to be in with the chance of winning a prize. The winning entry will be drawn 2 January 2018.

This Festive calendar and trail has been created in collaboration with the Tourist Information Centre and St Mary’s Church, Kirkby Lonsdale. Some of the events may be ticketed, so please check beforehand. All events are subject to change or cancellation without notice.

The organisers would like to thank all the shops, venues, organisations and performers who have contributed to this calendar.
