~The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal is a multi-purpose arts complex presenting a year round programme of theatre, music, comedy, films, lectures and exhibitions, together with a range of adult and youth activities including art and craft workshops, and classes.
 
As well as holding superb music and theatre from across the globe, the centre also hosts an array of great festivals throughout the year, such as the The International Comic Art Festival, Kendal Mountain Festival, Freerange Comedy Festival and many more.
 

MusicLinks is focused on meeting the needs of disadvantaged young people across the County of Cumbria, primarily South Lakeland and Eden. We have set up numerous projects in primarily rural areas. In the case of the Music Bus we provided a performance venue/ rehearsal space with IT suite upstairs. The Bus visited local festivals and  events across Cumbria and the North West for 7 years until being retired in 2010.

The Kendal Millennium Youth Choir first drew breath in September 2000 under the leadership of its then musical directors Linda Graves and Moira Hall. More affectionately known as "The Milli", its members are drawn from young people from 8-18 years of age in the Kendal and surrounding areas.

It is a non-competitive choir, whose aim is to promote music for children and young people. It offers an opportunity to sing and produce music both formally and informally through regular rehearsals and concerts, as well as local workshops and residential weekends.
