Awards 2012 West of England Environment and Culture Category Winner: Kendal Mountain Festival 2012

Congratulations to Kendal Mountain Festival on winning the 2012 West of England Environment and Culture awards. KMF draws £1.2 – £2 million (£1.97 million in 2011) into the local economy and generates a return of £9.36 for every pound spent. Outsrc are keen to continue supporting the KMF with a vision to “inspire more people to explore, enjoy and represent mountain & wilderness and their cultures”.

Mark Davies of CCLA, one of this year’s judges, said: “What an amazing project! In a small town in Cumbria how many would have thought it could ever happen. A real demonstration of hard work to create a Festival and experience like no other.”
