/ The Kendal Mountain Festival 2016 - 17 to 20 Nov
Kendal Mountain Festival is by far the largest and most varied event of its type in the world. Rub shoulders with your heroes - filmmakers, adventurers and lecturers will gather from around the world with numerous world, European and UK film premieres. And of course it’s THE main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK.
For the climbers & mountaineers, there's presentations from Alex Megos, Cedar Wright, Jorg Verhoeven & Katha Sauwein, Bullock and Boswell, plus the Scottish Winter Session.
For the snowsports fans Jenny Jones is back to host the session, featuring freeskier Enak Gavaggio.
Sarah Outen and Ash Dykes will thrill you with tales of their adventures around the world.
We have a mountain running Endurance Night Special with ultra-runner Anton Krupicka joining us from across the pond, as well as record-breaking fell runner Jasmin Paris.
We all know that at the heart of Kendal lies the best and most diverse films from the world of adventure filmmaking. This year you can see the world première of Al Lee's all action cinematic spectacular Blockheads and Leo Houlding in the UK première of Mirror Wall.
