Kendal Mountain Festival arrives at Waterside Arts with an evening dedicated to climbing, mountaineering and snow sports. Featuring stories sourced from around the world, this mix of curated films and exciting speakers promises to transport attendees to some of the globe’s most exciting and inaccessible locations.

Curated by Kendal’s seasoned pros, and sponsored by some of the biggest names in outdoor equipment, Kendal Mountain Festival is designed to be an intimate, close-up affair suitable for curious onlookers and dedicated sportpeople.  While this year’s speakers are still to be finalised — do check back with the venue nearer the time — attendees can expect real experts, athletes, adventurers and filmmakers from across the world of extreme sports (2020’s line up included the likes of Olympian snowboarder Xavier De Le Rue) and beyond.
