Virtual Basecamp

If you love our usual Basecamp experience with its mixture of free lectures and the chance to check out new kit, meet athletes and take part in competitions, don’t worry. Our Virtual Basecamp will be up and running, bringing you a truly interactive experience featuring all of the above in the digital realm. The only thing that’ll be missing is the bar; you’ll just have to head for the fridge.

Embracing a new challenge

As mountain enthusiasts, we’re all familiar with the challenge of assessing risk. Do you continue to head for that summit, or seek another route?

Recent events have made it clear that, for us, it’s time to re-calibrate. We all want Kendal Mountain Festival to excite and inspire in the same way that it has for forty years. But bringing people together on the ground this particular year, with the constantly-shifting guidelines, is looking increasingly problematic.

We have therefore taken the decision to move Kendal Mountain Festival online-only. Is this a big move? Yes. Is it sensible? Yes. Will it still bring the Kendal magic? Absolutely!

We’ll be pouring all our effort and energy into creating an amazing experience at Kendal Mountain Festival Online. 

So it’s onwards and upwards!

We’re staying positive, creative and bold as ever.
