Horseback adventurer and trail setter Louis Hall comes to Norwich
Blundstone ambassador Louis Hall is a writer, rider and explorer from Scotland. Aged 18, he first discovered the power of the horse while in search of a tribe in northern Mongolia. Since then he has gone on to ride down the length of the UK and across Europe in aid of charitable causes. In 2022 Louis created the first conclusive horse trail across the Ligurian Alps, on his way from Siena, Italy to Cape Finisterre in Spain. He now has his eyes set on America and the Silk Road.
In 2020 Will founded The Big Hoof - a charity promoting adventure and wellbeing through long distance rides. So far, his charity has travelled over 4000 km in 5 different countries, raising over £70,000 for causes centred on mental health, wellbeing and child welfare.
Join Louis on stage at the UEA Theatre in Norwich on 17th June.
The event, part of the Kendal Mountain Festival UK Tour, also features award winning adventure films from those creating waves in the worlds of cycling, skiing, mountaineering, swimming and regenerative farming - to name just a few! Steve Scott, director of Kendal Mountain Festival and Tour presenter says: “Kendal is all about adventure; stories of extreme human endurance, breathtaking environments and adrenaline-fuelled excitement. Our Tour events are mini-Festivals that distil this spirit of adventure and exploration into one unique evening.”
