/ Kendal Mountain Festival: What's On/Buy Tickets
Find out what is on at this year's Kendal Mountain Festival and buy tickets.
Head on to: http://www.mountainfest.co.uk for more details.
Also, The Last Great Climb Premiere (Leo Houlding and co in Antarctica) is one of the early bird ticket options and will surely sell out before long, so let this be a warning to those expecting things to be like last year. About a quarter of the tickets have gone so far. I know this because for the first time ever, as far as I can remember you can pick where you sit.
PS I don't work for the festival, just don't want folk to miss out.
> Not really - it doesn't show which films are being shown when. I don't want a film pass - I just want tickets for a particular film.
You might have better luck directing your question at the event organisers rather than myself, there is an email address at the bottom of their website.
However, for what its worth through my experience of visiting this festival over the last decade or so, it won't have been organised to the extent you require as yet. For instance, the closing date for film entries according to the site isn't until the 7th September. Hence, most of the tickets available now are for film passes. Also, I don't think I've ever known what's on when (film wise) going into a festival, so the first job is to get a programme and work out what to do from there. If its just the one particular film you're after, I don't think I'd bother attending, but attempt to view it by some other means.
For anyone who loves the Boardman Tasker Awards you need to book as soon as the date is announced as they sell out early on.
No worries James. I'm sure all tickets will be on sale on line before the festival starts, if its anything like previous years. Just need to keep an eye out. I think the organisers have realised a marketing opportunity with these early bird ones. All I've bought is a Last Great Climb ticket at the mo, but will probably get a film pass for one of the days nearer the time. Yeah, be good to catch up. Can probably manage a day/weekend adventure, if you don't mind dragging me up something.
Weird, there seem to be a lot less seats booked for the Last Great Climb Premiere than when we booked ours in August.
Keen on doing the run this year, but I see only maybe 20 people have signed up??
Is there a memento at the end at well?
I emailed the organisers but no reply
Many congratulations to Harriet Tuckey for winning this year's Boardman Tasker prize. This comes on top of her success winning the best book of mountain and wilderness literature award at Banff.
