For the final leg of our tour, we’ll be bringing the Festival back to our home town – Kendal.

We are excited to welcome the incredible explorer and TV Presenter Paul Rose to the stage to share tales from his life of adventure. Paul is one of the world’s most experienced divers and polar experts. He has led expeditions all over the world and starred in highly acclaimed BBC documentaries such as ‘Oceans’, ‘Voyages of Discovery' and more recently the hit series ‘The Lakes with Paul Rose’.

Alongside Paul’s talk, we will be showing a collection of short adventure films – stories of talent, endurance and excitement that will take your breath away. For our local Kendal audience, we have even secured a couple of brand new films.

The evening will be presented by Festival director Steve Scott and we will be giving away prizes from our tour partners.
