The 15th Kendal Mountain Festival brought 11,000 people to South Lakeland and generated around £2million to the local economy, say organisers.
The 2014 festival, partly funded by South Lakeland District Council, brought together enthusiasts and experts for a weekend of films, talks and workshops.
Organisers of the festival say the success is down to the "programme mix, award-winning films and the main venue in Kendal.. which has become the hub of the festival."
