The trailer for the 2019 Kendal Mountain Festival has been released. ‘Open Out’ follows a young female protagonist as she experiences the festival for the first time. The short video communicates the key themes of culture and inclusion, which are at the heart of this year’s event.

Kendal Mountain Festival Director, Jacqui Scott says: ‘We believe the ‘mountain’ isn’t defined by immense peaks and glaciers but rather wherever you can connect with the spirit of the outdoors. ‘Open Out’ perfectly illustrates our desire to nurture a sense of adventure across the generations. We want to open the outdoors and encourage both children and adults alike to embrace experiencing it for themselves.’

The Festival takes place 14–17 November across various venues around town. With a free programme of events at the Basecamp tented village.

This year the Festival includes 100+ events including kids literature at the new Children’s Story Camp and a new Road Bike Session. Tickets selling fast!
