Montane Secret Session Tour

Kendal Mountain Festival's Secret Sessions are the fastest-selling and most sought-after events across the entire Festival. After the fantastic success of our 2023 Montane Secret Sessions Tour we're back on the road in 2024, with two new venues.

The Secret Sessions are a simple concept, if unexpected; your ticket gains you access to a small, intimate event starring someone from the world of adventure.
