Kendal Mountain Festival 17-20 Nov 2011- presenting and more...
It’s that time of year again…a must-do weekend in the annual climbing calendar for many…the Kendal Mountain Festival. It’s running over 17-20 Nov and I’ll be up there with various metaphorical hats on.
For starters, on the Friday evening Marmot are holding ‘A Question Of Climbing’- what’s that you may ask? Well, it sounds quite highbrow but promises to be anything but! With John Horscroft hosting this game show formatted evening, myself as a team-captain, along with five other climbing personalities, we will be challenged (and humiliated I suspect) in many ways. John has described it as a cross between;
Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You and A question Of Sport, with a few of his wacky ideas thrown in! So come along, have a laugh and maybe even question the panel yourself with something devious: 8pm Friday evening in the main theatre in the Brewery Arts Centre.
Then I will be presenting various things over the Saturday and Sunday, the most notable being Lynn Hill’s talk on Saturday evening in the theatre at the Brewery. That is pretty cool and I’m really looking forward to it, as well as being slightly nervous if I’m honest!! All good stuff though and lots of great films to watch too, so if I see you up there and my eyes have gone square, you’ll know why.
