Literature has always had a home at our award-winning Kendal Mountain Festival, each year the Festival hosts the Boardman Tasker Awards for Mountain Literature. For 2017, the Kendal Mountain team increased the literature offering with the launch of a full programme of literary events – celebrating the very best landscape, nature and place writing!
The Literature Festival will be returning this year from 15 – 18 November 2018
The literature programme provides a platform for new thinking, adventurous imagination and creativity, which can change perceptions and inspire people. The programme includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art.
