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!
