Adaptive Sport at Keswick Mountain Festival

Adaptive Sport at Keswick Mountain Festival

Keswick Mountain Festival invites you to visit our Adaptive Sporting Festival Village inside the Festival Event.

No Matter your condition, we have great outdoor access kit for you to try, oh and bring the family. Come and see what all the fuss is about.

Keswick Mountain Festival will take place between the 10th – 12th September. There is plenty going on including – brand new for 2021 – the Accessibility Zone! This is an area dedicated to charities and organisations providing the ways and means for disabled people and those with adaptive needs to get the most of their time in the outdoors. There will also be live music  (a special viewing area will make it easier for people with disabilities to see the stage); speakers; films; food and drink; camping; taster and outdoor activities; a comprehensive sports timetable and much more. You will find some photographs to whet your appetite via the Gallery Link below…

Adaptive Sport at Keswick Mountain Festival is situated in the Accessibility Zone, which is located just inside the main entrance to the Festival Village. It features a number of charities and businesses with information to inspire you and kit to try out. You can check out the list of exhibitors by following the link below. United Utilities are sponsors of the Accessibility Zone and their funding has paid for the hire of a mobiloo for the weekend as well as allowing invited charities to attend for free. The mobiloo can be found towards the rear of the Accessibility Zone and is also close to the disabled viewing area which has a good view of the live music stage.

Adaptive Sport at Keswick Mountain Festival has thought of everything: as well as the bespoke viewing area for the live music stage and the mobiloo, free carer tickets are available, disabled parking can be found in Lakeside Car Park and the Primus pop up campsite is open to all and includes 2 accessible toilets. You would need to follow the correct booking procedures in each case and information can be found on the website link below.

This sounds like a lot of fun and we applaud the Keswick Mountain Festival organisers for making it accessible. We hope that you will head along to check it out.
