Thanks to everyone who supported our new Literature offering. It was a fantastic literature programme, a diverse mix of over 20 authors across nonfiction, fiction, poetry and art. Speakers include Sir Chris Bonington, Emma Henderson, Karen Lloyd and Judith Matloff.
With the support and help of the outdoor community, we want to build a sustainable Kendal Mountain Festival that champions’ environmental and social sustainability, helping to set and achieve the highest standards of innovation, inclusivity and creativity.
Welcome to Kendal Mountain Festival presented by Columbia
We host a highly respected international film competition, a packed lecture programme of guest speakers, filmmakers and athletes and crucially it’s the main social gathering for outdoor enthusiasts. We have thousands of visitors from home and overseas, hundreds of film screenings including high-profile premières plus plenty of special guests making this a must-do long weekend in The Lake District.
