Things to do in Ambleside at the Aerial Festival
Venues taking part in the Aerial Festival include everywhere from the local St Mary’s Church, Ambleside Tavern and the mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle. Even the local transport is involved, with the 555 and 599 routes transforming into the “Poetry Bus” during the festivities.
The weekend focuses largely on contemporary music, art and literature. With a number of live performances, installations, conversations and after-hour events taking place in and around Ambleside.
Those likely to be among the highlights are the spoken word poetry of rising star Kate Tempest and Hayden Thorpe from indie rock band Wild Beast. As well as showcasing his debut solo album at St Mary’s Church, Hayden Thorpe will also be performing a choral piece with the Deep Throat Choir.
The latter of which takes place in among the ancient site of nearby Castlerigg Stone Circle. Another of the outdoor events will be within the woodland of Langdale Valley at Merz Barn, whereby local artists can contribute their own recordings. Which will then be played out as guests walk through the grounds.
Those of you looking for things to do later on in the evening, the Ambleside Tavern host late night sessions from 10pm. Both nights include either vinyl DJ’s or live performances, combining music to dance to along with the up and coming stars of tomorrow.
