BMC supported climbing and outdoor festival in the beautiful Duddon valley in the Lake District.



Supported by the BMC

Lakes Fest 2020 is a celebration of the Duddon valley.  Organised by a small group of dedicated volunteers with support from the BMC, the festival is non-profit making, meaning costs for you are kept to an absolute minimum.  

We have activities for experienced and novice climbers, family activities and activities which we hope will give you an insight into how the beauty of the Duddon valley is maintained and operated.

We'll have a BMC marquee in the campsite where we will meet for most of the events.  We'll also set up a board there for communications over the weekend.

It isn't necessary to take part in the organised activities to enjoy the festival, just turn up for a few beers or come camp in the field with us.  Come alone, with friends, with your partner or with your family, we are open for all.


We are committed to doing as much as possible to make sure the festival goes ahead but clearly we do know how long the COVD-19 restrictions will last.  We haven't cancelled the festival and are hoping this will all be behind us by September. so we can enjoy the beautiful Duddon together in September.  Here's hoping! 

Stay safe people!
