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 and tickets are now available.
Expect a diverse programme of events featuring some of the UK’s foremost authors of nature, landscape and mountain literature. You’ll be entertained and inspired by the diverse mix of authors gathering to share their work, which ranges from non-fiction to fiction and includes poetry as well as art from the ‘Outdoor’ genre.
Featuring over 40 authors, poets and writers, this year takes the theme of ‘connection’ to explore the latest and very best outdoor inspired literature from across the UK.
Paul Scully, Festival Manager and Literature Programmer said: “We are thrilled to welcome so many incredible writers to the Festival and look forward to being inspired, challenged and provoked by the ideas and connection of those who have immersed themselves in the natural world.”
