Festival Venues & Cafe
The Festival is held in Carlisle City Centre, in three locations. For information about how to get there and accessibility, click on the photographs below. Performances take place in St Cuthbert's Church and St George's United Reformed Church.
The Festival Café at the Tithe Barn is open each day from 9am to 4pm. Everyone is welcome, whether to rehearse, 'warm-up' before performing or simply to chat and get refreshments.
As usual there will be hot & cold drinks, tray-bakes, soup and sandwiches: bacon rolls will be continually available and do watch out for Chef Chris's tasty hot meal of the day.
As a charitable organisation the festival relies on the contribution made by the cafe to boost funds and ensure things can continue to run smoothly.
