  Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2003


UN-MISSABLE !!

With less than two weeks to go before the main Festival weekend all the programme and all the great films we are showing. If you have not got your tickets yet then get on the web or phone
(01539 725133) and book them. We will sell out soon of many of the ticket  options – we only have a few left for “A Celebration of Sea Cliff  Climbing”, Catherine Destivelle and the Saturday Film Pass. We have already  sold out of “Touching the Void” and Joe Simpson.

May I remind you to vote for the finalists of the Web Photo Competition which will be posted on the web in the next couple of days. Any tickets now booked will be held at the Brewery Box office for collection (including Leisure Centre events). If your tickets get lost in the post due to the industrial action do not worry we have full records to enable us to re-issue your tickets.

What are you doing during the week before the Festival? Have a look what is happening.
