Kendal Mountain Festival Tour 2023
Unleash your wild side…
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.
We will also welcome leading sports dietitian Renee McGregor to the stage to share her fascinating insights into the human body and nutrition. What we eat has a huge impact on our physical and mental health, and our performance in our chosen sport, whether we’re elite-level athletes or enthusiastic amateurs. Renee’s work touches on areas of sports nutrition in populations that are often overlooked, including women’s health and the menopause, healthy ageing, and the inclusion of individuals who don’t necessarily conform to the stereotype of an athlete, such as people living with chronic health conditions.
Expect exhilarating and moving tales from those creating waves in the worlds of cycling, skiing, mountaineering, swimming and regenerative farming. These are this year’s Tour films…

A quest to enchain New Zealand’s 24 highest mountains above 3000 metres in a continuous 31-day push.
