Andy Perkins
Presenting Team

Andy Perkins first got involved with Kendal Mountain Festival when as a young rock climber in the early 80's he was dead chuffed to get a photo exhibited at Kendal.

In the next 10 years, he established a reputation as a pioneer of new winter routes in Scotland and the use of big wall tactics in the Himalaya, as well as a spell as a vice president of the BMC. As a mountain guide based in Chamonix, he talks nonsense for a living so when Kendal Mountain Festival was reborn 10 years later, he was recruited as a presenter.

He now organises the training, recruiting, briefing and scheduling of presenters and has become 'the face' of the Festival, which is a bit like being the face of L'Oreal only not worth quite so much.

In his spare time, Andy climbs rock and eats cakes.
