Kendal Mountain Festival 2016

17 November - 20 November

Tommy Caldwell at Kendal Mountain Festival 2015

One bonus about the long slide into winter is you can always look forward to the Kendal Mountain Festival. Held every November, it’s THE main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK. As ever, this year’s event will feature hundreds of film screenings including high-profile premieres, plus loads of speakers and special guests making this a must-do long weekend in the Lake District.

Although coy on early specifics, the organisers say that they’re working with some big names to headline this year’s programme. You can expect some of the world’s top adventurers, climbers and mountaineers plus stars from across the outdoor world including bikers, canoeists, skiers, paragliders and cavers.

Kendal Mountain Festival promises plenty of quality film action to look forward to as well, with new movies from the UK’s top filmmakers, plus of course the cream of new releases from around the world.

Together with the art exhibitions, literature lectures, the Party plus the Boardman Tasker literary prize, it’s going to be another unmissable year.

Dates for your diary are 17 – 20 November with early bird film tickets on sale shortly, and the main programme will be available in August – news as it happens at Kendal Mountain Festival
