There’s so much going on over the Festival weekend, here's a run down of what's on offer...
Featuring renowned speakers and activists, alongside two-hour sessions focussing on your favourite activities featuring films and your heroes live on stage!
Enjoy the world's best adventure films on the big screen. We host a vast and varied film programme, top film premieres and interviews with filmmakers and stars.
Enter our FREE tented Basecamps and meet your favourite brands, enjoy inspirational talks on our Basecamp stages and catch up with adventure buddies over a beer or two.
A wide variety of talks from authors, poets, academics, and more...bringing Nature writing to life. We are also delighted to present the Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature and a series of Children's authors to inspire our youngest Festival goers.
Dance, performance art, photography – enjoy the most creative interpretations of the great outdoors.
We've got bands and DJs, acoustic sets, Silent Discos, and pop-up parties happening at venues all over Kendal, all weekend! Some are ticketed, some are free - all are legendary!
Mystery location, mystery speaker, one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated events over the weekend. Get in there and book in advance through ticketing - these sell out fast!
For a break from marathon film viewing, take part in the adidas TERREX 10K trail race, live in Kendal or virtually wherever you are in the world!
We are always excited to welcome the whole family to Kendal. With a free Family Adventure Film session, creative events at the Kendal Library, Children's Literature talks, and plenty of interactive content in the Basecamp Village specifically for families - we are delighted to Share the Adventure with everyone.
Films, events, and talks relating to the environment, climate breakdown, and activism. An area that continues to grow and be represented at Kendal. We pride ourselves on being a platform for all voices to be heard.
We all know the benefits of yoga and since being at the Festival can be an act of endurance - take time to unwind with our Live Yoga sessions hosted by our friends at BAM. Booking is required in advance through ticketing.
We want to make the Festival as accessible as possible for all; that is why we pride ourselves on the depth and range of content that we programme in our huge Basecamp Villages. Come join in on the Festival fun for FREE!
Tickets for our live Festival will be released in September, in the meantime you can get INSPIRATIONAL content on demand via the new KENDAL MOUNTAIN PLAYER!
