Tour director Nell Teasdale said: “UK and Irish audiences have a huge passion for adventure, so we’re delighted to be able to share these amazing films and their intrepid characters with wider audiences and even more venues. We guarantee the tour will inspire viewers to start planning their own outdoor adventures too."

The tour’s films are chosen from hundreds of films entered into the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival, which takes place every year in the Canadian Rockies.

The tour comes to the Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells on Thursday, April 19 and heads to the Gulbenkian in Canterbury on Saturday, April 28.
