Kendal Mountain Festival 2021

By 12th November 2021Events, Heart of Kendal

We’re stoked to be heading back to Kendal Mountain Festival for 2021. As a melting pot for forging new ideas, and catching up with fellow adventurers and activists it’s hard to beat.

We’ll once again be heading up with River Kent clean up, this time taking place on Sunday 21st at 12 noon, helped by our friends at Palm Equipment and Pyranha. We’ll also be propping up a few bars, taking in some talks and shows, and sneaking espressos at the Dewerstone stand at basecamp.

The lovely people at Castle Street Garage (just over the road) have given us permission to drop off boats there, and Kirbie Kendal Primary School have offered their car park to leave cars in while we’re on the water!

Drop your boat at Castle St Garage, and if you are bringing a vehicle, drive downstream and drop it off at the school and walk back upstream.

What?
We’ll be making our way downstream, clearing anything that shouldn’t be in the river. At the end of the section, we’ll sort, record and recycle everything we can. The council have even said they’ll take it all away for us!

Who?
Everyone! We’d love as many people as possible to join us on the water and along the banks to celebrate and protect the river that is the heart of Kendal. If you are not a paddler, join one of the rafts or get involved from the bank.
A short briefing will be given at the start to ensure that everyone stays safe through the event.
