We live for the outdoors and the Lake District. They are both integral to who we are and lifestyle we choose. The Keswick Mountain Festival believes in an outdoors for everyone and exists to help visitors develop skills, discover new ones – or to simply hang-out with people who share a common outlook.
The festival also gives an opportunity to stand back, listen, learn and admire the abilities of the world’s best athletes, world class mountaineers and local legends too. With its stunning scenery, unrivalled setting and its natural arena, Keswick is the perfect location for a Mountain Festival and an ideal starting point for adventure.
Venue: various near the Keswick Boat Landings and at the Theatre by the Lake
