Kendal Mountain Festival

Kendal Mountain Festival, Visit England's 'Tourism Event of the Year' 2014 is delighted to announce it's coming to London. Celebrating and sharing adventure, guests are invited to enjoy an evening packed full of award-winning films and first-hand accounts from some of the UK's most intrepid explorers. A night of two halves, guests are treated to talks from Lizzie Carr and Dave Cornthwaite. Lizzie is an Adventurer and environmentalist who has paddleboarded 643km along the connected waterways from Surrey to Cumbria in 2016 to raise awareness of plastic pollution. Since quitting his life as a couch potato in 2005 Dave got busy, so far completing eleven non-motorised journeys each over 1000 miles, including skateboarding across Australia, paddleboarding the Mississippi and swimming the Lower Missouri. As well as hearing from Lizzie and Dave, a selection of the best adventure films from around the world will be screened: be amazed by watching Johanna, the Finnish freediver who dives under the ice, and Tom Seipp, the fearless young cyclist with an incredible enthusiasm for long journeys on his bike, plus more of our favourite films from Kendal Mountain Festival 2016!
