Kendal Mountain Festival ready to ‘move’ you as they confirm live return for 2021

After last year’s digital-only event, Kendal Mountain Festival bounces back this November with a full live programme which the organisers say will “blow your socks off”.

The organisers are planning their strongest Festival line-up to date with must-see speakers, films and events, plus a new Basecamp village featuring multiple free stages and an expanded food and drink offering.  Further great news is that all events on the main Festival stages will be available to view online, along with the entire film programme, through the Festival’s new Kendal Mountain Player where you can also catch up on last year’s stage events plus new content being added throughout the year – sign up now!

With a heritage of over 40 years, the Kendal Mountain team works each year to a different theme and this year sees film, speaker events, literature, art and dance coming together around the theme of ‘Movement’ in the great outdoors.

Artistic director Claire Carter says:

‘At Kendal this year we celebrate Movement and our programme of events is being curated around this theme. The physical potential of our bodies, the evolution of our environment, and all the communities that shift individuals and create change through the great outdoors.
Whether you race, glide, crimp, paddle, carve, ride, wheel, pace or blast… you create Movement.  Let’s join together at Kendal, to move, to shift our mindset, to take up new endeavours, to connect.’

Festival dates are 18-21 November and tickets go on sale 24 September; for more info head to:
