Kendal Mountain Festival

19:30, 19 May

Join us for a one-of-a-kind evening celebrating exploration of some of the wildest places on earth.

The event will centre around a collection of short adventure films - stories of talent, endurance and excitement that will take your breath away! Ride icy waves in sub zero winter, chase tornados, run in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and mountain bike into the wildest reaches of your imagination.

Alongside our incredible collection of films, we’ll be joined by Uisdean Hawthorn, a Scottish climber with a love for big mountain routes. Over the last three seasons he has racked up a number of significant first ascents including The Giant (VII,7) and Han Solo (VIII,7). Uisdean joins us to share tales from his epic climbs.

The evening will be presented by Festival Director Steve Scott and we will have giveaways from our tour sponsors.

Amazing talks from @bethbigswim and @jackharries at @kendalmountain Tour today in east London. After hearing of Beth's Ocean 7 challenge i'm no longer scared about freezing in my sea swim triathlon at the weekend! #kendalmountaintour #kendaltour18
