There is a fantastic range of events that take place in and around Ullswater each year that celebrate the rich diversity, local history, culture and beauty of the area. Highlights include the world famous Marmalade Festival, the popular Winter Droving, Ullswater Walking Festival or Ullswater’s very own Daff Fest. Or perhaps one of the many sporting events, such as the Ullswater Triathlon or the Epic Lakes Swim is more your cup of tea?

Create a Head Dress, Bring the Green Dragon to Life and Join The B Jambra Parage With Blue Jam Arts

29th April 2017 @ 11:00 am - 30th April 2017 @ 3:00 pm


This year at Rheged we have teamed up with Blue Jam Arts to bring to life the huge ‘Green Dragon’ and we need some helpers! We need help to rebuild the Dragon scales before it is woken up by the sound of the Samba drums! We will be running drop-in workshops on Saturday and Sunday to rebuild the dragon, have a go at the Samba drums and making your own flame head dress to take away with you. On Sunday, we will have a mini parade here at Rheged at 2.30pm, but you can also join B Jamba on Bank Holiday Monday in Penrith and take pride of place in the “Penrith Lions’ May Day Parade” alongside the dancing Green Dragon (Please note, no dragons were harmed during the making of this event – this is a Parade Dragon puppet!).
11am – 3pm • Drop in  •  £5 includes all activities through-out one day
