Festival of the Fells
LOCATION: Ambleside and surrounds
DATES: Thursday 21 September – Sunday 25 September, 2016
SPONSOR: Heart of the Lakes – www.heartofthelakes.co.uk
BACKGROUND: The festival is being organised by the group Ambleside Together, which was formed in January 2016 to promote the town in the wake of the December 2015 floods. Since then, the ʻLove Amblesideʼ branding campaign has been launched on social media and with a website (www.loveambleside.uk), and most of the shops in the town have put up window stickers with its distinctive heart logo. ʻLove Amblesideʼ is the public face of Ambleside Together.
THE FESTIVAL: Itʼs a mountain, outdoor-activity and cultural festival, designed particularly to appeal to fell lovers of all levels, but there is plenty of interest for people who just . . . well, Love Ambleside!
