KENDAL Mountain Festival’s first summer fringe event took place in Langdale last weekend.

It featured tales of climbing derring-do by Andy Kirkpatrick and his daughter Ella and live bands Handbrake Shirley, Righteous Bees, Scrogans Run and The Seals.

There was also foraging chef Kieran Creevy, films and technology in the wilderness.

KMF director Clive Allen said: “This was the first time we’d organised a fringe event and we wanted it to reflect everything that people associate with Kendal Mountain Festival.

“A great social atmosphere, brilliant films and inspirational speakers, it worked really well.”
