Kendal Mountain Festival on Tour 2020 Harrogate
Watch a collection of our best short films on the big screen – stories of human endurance, breathtaking environments and soul-stirring journeys.
Full film details coming soon.
Hear from award-winning travel writer Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent who joins us to share tales from her particular love for embarking on difficult journeys through remote regions. Antonia was the recipient of the Royal Geographical Society's 2019 Neville Shulman Challenge Award and will be speaking about her latest journey, a two month expedition through the Naga tribal territories of the Indo-Myanmar border. Travelling by foot, motorbike, boat and local transport, she met former head-hunters, shamans, Baptist preachers, opium farmers, hunters and Naga insurgents engaged in the ongoing struggle for independence from India and Myanmar.
Alan Hinkes OBE, a Fjällräven Ambassador, is the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world's highest mountains, a feat achieved by fewer people than have stood on the moon! Boasting an extraordinary mountaineering track record, Alan's frank and humorous accounts make any of his talks a must-see.
