The London Mountain Film Festival will be held at the Royal Geographical Society, South Kensington, on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th May 2020. Two days of exciting mountain and adventure films will be complemented by an outdoors exhibition, mountain food stalls, fun for kids and inspiring talks from adventurers.
Meet our first speakers!
MEL NICHOLLS: GB Paralympian and ultra endurance athlete, Mel lives life in the fast lane in her racing career and in her passion for adventure. A series of strokes sent her on a journey from fit and healthy adrenaline junkie to wheelchair racing before an 80,000 home crowd at London 2012. In 2019 Mel laid down a new record for handbiking the 874 miles from Land's End to John o'Groats
STEVE BIRKINSHAW: Steve's a legend within the fell and ultra running communities, having won over twenty elite class races including the Lakeland 100 and Dragon's Back events. In 2014 he famously crashed through all 214 Lakeland Wainwrights in under 7 days. He was back there recently supporting Paul Tierney on the fells to beat his own record.
DOUG SCOTT: In 1975 Doug was the first Briton to reach the summit of Mount Everest, via the formidable south-west face. In total he has summitted forty peaks in the high mountains of Asia over 42 expeditions. In 1977 he climbed the Ogre with Chris Bonington and endured a survival story that is the stuff of folklore.
PETE WHITTAKER: Pete grew up in the Peak District where he started climbing aged six. In 2014 he flashed the Freerider (5.12d) on El Capitan and in 2016 was the first person to make a solo-free ascent of El Capitan in under 24 hours. He was back there in 2018 for a single-day solo link-up of both El Capitan and Half Dome.
