The Soothill Hall

The College’s Soothill Hall will once again be a venue on the national Kendal Mountain Tour, which this year is compèred by Festival Director Steve Scott, and features a jaw-dropping collection of adventure films from travellers, athletes, activists, and creatives.

Steve will be joined on stage by award-winning endurance adventure athlete Jamie Ramsay, who has completed more than 43,000km of ‘human-powered adventuring’ in 31 countries and 25 different adventures.

He will be sharing tales from his Atlantic to Andes cycle touring adventure, which started in São Paulo, Brazil, and passed through Paraguay before entering Bolivia and cycling over the Andes to the Salar de Uyuni and on to La Paz, covering 3,700km in 28 days.

Anna Rakusen-Guy, Ashville's Events and Lettings Manager, said: “It’s superb to be welcoming the Kendal Mountain Tour back to Ashville College next month, with what promises to be another evening of superb films and fascinating talks.

“Our Soothill Hall is a popular mid-sized performance hall which can cater for a wealth of different events, from evenings such as this to plays, concerts and summer schools. Ashville also benefits from plenty of on-site parking and super catering facilities.”
