Festival of the Fells Ambleside

Festival of the Fells  – Ambleside 22nd –  25th September 2016

Ambleside is to stage Festival of the Fells this September, offering a feast of walking, swimming and scrambling in the town once known as the anorak capital of the world.

It’s going to be held in September, to celebrate the local landscape, culture, history and outdoor activities.

It’s being set up by ‘Ambleside Together’, responsible for Love Ambleside. A programme of events is being planned and these will include guided walks over Loughrigg and Wansfell, Red Screes, and the Fairfield Horseshoe, combined swim and walk tours using lakes and tarns, and talks on the history, fell-walking and climbing exploits of the area. The organisers also hope that local restaurants and cafes will create special festival dishes for their menus.

UPDATE: Top mountaineer Alan Hinkes is to be patron of the first Festival of the Fells to be staged in Ambleside this autumn.
