The organisers of Keswick Mountain Festival (KMF) have announced the dates for the 2018 event, which will run from 7 to 10 June 2018 at Crow Park in Keswick.

The 2017 KMF was held in June for the first time and featured the event’s biggest ever programme. Improvements to the event included a larger dedicated campsite, increased capacity in the sporting events, and the addition of new activities for young people.

KMF say they are very pleased that they will be able to stage the festival once again next June:

Our priority has always been to deliver a sustainable major event here in the heart of Cumbria, that brings in extra visitors and income, and which local residents can also enjoy and take pride in.

Independent research shows that the event brought £1.17m into the Keswick area in 2017 and that 15% of the visitors were new to Keswick and would return."
