The Kendal Mountain Festival Opening Celebration
Celebrate the start of the Kendal Mountain Festival 2018 on Thursday 15 November with a big welcome from our patrons, Sir Chris Bonington and Leo Holding.
Head along to 'Greenside' (the open space opposite the Rifleman's Pub, up from Beast Banks) at 5.30pm for a community gathering and a 'grand welcome' and 'official opening' of this year's Festival. Then at 5.40pm join us on our very own 'Alpine Descent' - down Captain French Lane and on to the Brewery Arts Centre, complete with flag waving, cow bells and a live band! Don't forget to bring your head torches!
Once the procession reaches the Brewery Arts Centre you are welcome to join us for 30 minutes to watch some of our newest films from this year's International Film Competition and of course view the Festival trailer on the big screen (*please note numbers for the film screening are limited - so collect a free ticket from the team up at Greenside to get a seat). The 'hot off the press' free Festival programme will also be available for pick up so you can plan your weekend ahead. Festivities will all be finished by 6.30pm but you are welcome to make a night of it and stay on at the Brewery.
Suitable for families and anyone with a sense of adventure - so come join us in the fun and celebrate that the town of Kendal delivers the world's biggest Mountain Film and Adventure Festival!
