The Kendal Mountain Festival, one of Cumbria's biggest annual events, has begun.
It runs until Sunday 17 November and is said to be one of the UK's top festivals for outdoor enthusiasts. Organisers say it brings millions of pounds to the local economy every year. The programme includes a film festival, exhibitions, workshops and active sports events.
The 2018 festival attracted 16,000 visitors, with 18,000 tickets sold in total. In 2013 only 10,000 people attended. This year it's expected to bring up to 20,000 people to the town.
As a result, there are questions over whether it may have grown too big. This year most events sold out months ago, locals have been unable to purchase tickets, and visitors have been struggling to find accommodation.
Fiona Marley Paterson has been in Kendal to find out more.
