About us

WHAT IS IT?

Marple Adventure Film Festival is a charity event which will showcase some incredible short adventure films to provide inspiration, motivation and entertainment in equal measure!

This year’s films have won Awards at similar Mountain Film or Outdoor film festivals, and are just the tonic for breaking up the cold nights and giving you ideas of how you can challenge yourself, do something extraordinary, and live your life to the Max!

Our films have been created by intrepid adventurers who are pushing their limits – testing their endurance with a run from Lands End to John o Groats in under ten days, the nerves with trying new tricks in the notoriously dangerous world of Base Jumping, finding ways to cope with Lockdown, hitting the local peaks in any weather, of the extraordinary courage to attempt an ascent of the Old Man of Hoy, when completely blind – amongst other films with breath-taking scenery, challenges, or adventure!

Tickets are just £10 (buy here), with all proceeds going to 1st Marple Scout Group!

WHEN IS IT?

Friday 19th & Saturday 20th November 2021.

Each showing will display the same films, and the estimated showtime is 2 hours 15 including two short intervals. There will be a fully licensed bar which will be serving some fine local craft ale, as well as hot food, cakes and snacks available throughout the night (TBC – in 2019 it was Chilli and Nachos).

Evening shows: Doors open 7pm, first film commences 8pm, lights out by 11pm

WHERE IS IT?

The event is taking place at Marple Scout Hut (see map) – where kids have been inspired to get outdoors, try something new, and make friends for over 109 years!

IT’S FOR CHARITY?

Any funds raised from the Marple Adventure Film Fest will be reinvested into Scouting in Marple, to help us inspire the next generation of adventurers.
