Join us for an evening celebrating adventure from some of the most spectacular places on earth, brought to you by the world’s biggest mountain Festival – Kendal Mountain Festival.

A chance to watch a selection of award-winning films from high altitude adventure to cinematically beautiful tales showcasing wilderness and adventure travel from across the globe. Each film will be introduced by the Kendal Mountain Festival team.
