TOP comedians will be making their debut at this year's Kendal Calling.

The popular music festival has announced its second-wave line-up, which includes Channel 4 comedian Josh Widdicombe, and Yorkshire rock band, Reverend and the Makers.

More acts already on the bill include Tom Jones, Manic Street Preachers, Nile Rodgers & Chic Orbital, and the Courteeners, which will perform to tens of thousands of festival-goers at Lowther Deer Park.

As well as musical performances, the four-day show, which is open to all ages, will continue its annual reputation of providing an incredible set list with the addition of The Last Leg’ co-host, Widdicombe, who will be headlining the Kendal Calling’s Soapbox Stage.

Andy Smith, Kendal Calling festival director, said: “Whether it’s new acts, or legends like Tom Jones, there’s so much variety. We’re pleased with this years comedy line-up featuring some of our favourite comedians on the circuit, and we will also somehow be fitting a wrestling ring in there as we welcome La Lucha Brittania Mexican Wrestling to the deer park.”

Other additions to the festival line up includes American comedian Reginald D Hunter, who is a frequent favourite guest on many BBC panel shows, including QI, who stated he is “looking forward to returning to Kendal”.

With a theme of ‘Goes Jurassic’, in order to highlight climate change, the ‘dino-mite’ music festival promises to be of Spielberg-ian proportion - along with its unmissable weekend of music, arts, and comedy.

With a range of tricera-top-of-their-game headliners such as Courteeners and Manic Street Preachers, Kendal Calling will also play host to local acts too with the Lake District’s own nationally-renowned storyteller Taffy Thomas, and Joe Fleming Band, which hail from Ulverston.

Kendal Calling provides 10 campsites throughout the area adjacent to the arena, however, two campsites have already ‘sold out’.

If travelling by car, the festival site will be clearly sign-posted, but parking is on a first-come first-serve basis.
