16 – 19 NOVEMBER 2023


The remainder of our Festival speakers and our detailed Film Programme will be launched at a later date.

At Kendal all of our events are ticketed individually. This means you can customise your own experience, choose exactly what you want to see and how much you want to spend. We also have loads of free stuff at our Festival Basecamp including activities, competitions and free talks so you can keep entertained in between your ticketed events.


Each year after the Festival, we package up the spirit of ‘Kendal’ - as we genuinely love taking our stories on the road! Whether across the UK or internationally, our audience return each year to enjoy incredible film curations and remarkable guest speakers.


The ultimate social gathering for all those who love the outdoors – taking place at the gateway to The Lake District National Park each November.


Pure inspiration on-demand, 24/7. Catch our incredible adventure content online when and where it suits you best!

Calling All Filmmakers

Film is at the centre of the Festival, transporting us to adventures far and wide, giving us an intimate perspective on wilderness and cultures beyond our own.

Our 2023 Major Partners

An enormous thank you to the brands who choose to support and help us in our mission to inspire and nurture more people to explore, respect, learn from and represent mountains, wilderness and their cultures.
