2020 started well with packed audiences at venues all around the UK. Before the pandemic placed a hold on proceedings we managed to visit Whitley Bay, Harrogate, Caernarfon, Llanelli, Cardiff, London, Maidenhead, Southampton and Manchester.
The wonderful mix of engaging guest speakers and a uniquely curated film programme enables us to carry the spirit of Kendal to new audiences as well as to our growing group of Festival friends.
We did continue the Tour to several venues in the digital medium with a sun-filled filmed introduction from presenters Steve Scott and Claire Carter. They skilfully set the scene in front of their favourite backdrop of Blea Tarn from our home in the Lake District.
