Kendal Mountain Festival Film & Speaker 2020 Tour dates announced

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Kendal Mountain Festival is expanding its popular UK Tour to 40 dates, including – for the first time – several venues in Ireland.

Adventure lovers will thrill to an exciting evening filled with tales of daring, celebrating the great outdoors. Alongside a selection of the world’s best adventure films, each tour date features top speakers with headliners including Jenny Graham, the fastest women to cycle round the world; Jason Mallinson, a member of the famous diving team who rescued 12 Thai schoolboys from a flooded cave; endurance athlete Anna McNuff, who ran 4,000km across Britain completely barefoot; and top British alpinist Tom Livingstone.

Kendal Mountain Festival Tour Manager Anna Blakeley said: ‘We are delighted to be returning with an extended tour in 2020. These events allow us to take the best of the Festival on the road to new audiences across the UK.’

Each event is hosted by a member of the Festival presenting team, providing exclusive behind-the-scenes insights into the world of adventure filmmaking. Tour sponsors Fjällräven will welcome audiences to each event, and there will be plenty of chances to win prizes from Fjällräven and support sponsors Mountain Equipment and Pala Eyewear.
