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 – cycling the Tour Divide unsupported from Canada to Mexico, crunching themselves around the punishing Dragon’s Back Ultra in Wales, maximizing what you can do whilst running a marathon, as well as the extraordinary tale of the first climbers to free solo up the legendary El Capitan – amongst other films with breath-taking scenery, challenges, or adventure!

Tickets are just £8 (buy here), with all proceeds going to 1st Marple Scout Group!

WHEN IS IT?

Friday 15th & Saturday 16th November 2019.

Each showing will display the same films, and the estimated showtime is 2 hours 30 including two short intervals. There will be a fully licensed bar which will be serving some fine craft ale.

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.
