We bring the spirit of Kendal to you! 

Each year our Festival Tour, travelling to multiple venues across the UK and Ireland, aims to fire up your imagination with a mixture of carefully curated films and exciting speakers. This year marks our 40th anniversary!  We have received a record number of entries into our Film Competition, and have been blown away by the quality and breadth of the line-up that we’re able to bring you from across the world. The result is an extended 10-day Festival, starting on Thursday 19 and finishing on Sunday 29 November. Finally; your chance to catch all those sessions, lectures and films that you can’t usually fit in!
