Unleash your adventurous side…
Join us for an evening celebrating adventure from some of the most spectacular places on earth, brought to you by the world’s biggest mountain Festival – Kendal Mountain Festival.
A chance to watch a selection of award-winning films from high altitude adventure to cinematically beautiful tales showcasing wilderness and adventure travel from across the globe. Each film will be introduced by the Kendal Mountain Festival team.
Alongside epic and award winning films, author and adventure cyclist Rebecca Lowe joins us on Tour in Winchester to share her solo cycle adventure across the Middle East. One woman, one bike and one richly entertaining, perception-altering journey of discovery!
In 2015, as the Syrian War raged and the refugee crisis reached its peak, Rebecca Lowe set off on her bicycle taking on an 11,000 km route through Europe to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, the Gulf and finally to Iran, driven by a desire to learn more about this troubled region and its relationship with the West.
It was an odyssey through landscapes and history that captured her heart, but also a deeply challenging cycle across mountains, deserts and repressive police states that nearly defeated her. Plagued by punctures and battling temperatures ranging from -6 to 48˚C, Lowe was rescued frequently by farmers and refugees, villagers and urbanites alike, and relied almost entirely on the kindness and hospitality of locals to complete her journey.
