Living “On the Edge” in July in Langdale

At the end of July 2014, the award winning Kendal Mountain festival not only goes on the road but also “On the Edge”. For the first time Kendal Mountain Festival (KMF) is holding a summer event whilst still keeping with the main November event too taking place from 25th to 27th July 2014.

Instead of The Brewery Arts Centre and various locations in Kendal, the “On the Edge” festival is to be held outdoors and centred around Sticklebarn, the National Trust pub in the beautiful Langdale Valley (and the only one of the 60 National Trust owned pubs run by The National Trust).

Being held amidst the school summer holidays, this festival is also aiming to inspire and educate young people on the enjoyment, fun and ability to have adventures when taking part in outdoor activities. With plenty of diverse events during the weekend, held indoors and outdoors and during the day and evening, it is surely going to be an engaging time for children of any age.

From guided walks to films, guest speakers to live music as well as fantastic local food, “On the Edge” will bring together everyone ranging from families to outdoor enthusiasts and even some famous faces sure to be dropping in from the world of the outdoors.
