A prestigious mountain film festival comes to Leeds Town Hall next week.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is in the city on Thursday, February 2 and Friday, February 3.

Some of the attractions include thrilling short films about mind-blowing expeditions in remote parts of the globe.

Also on the itinerary will be the stars of Four Mums in a Boat, featuring four middle-aged working women from Yorkshire who rowed across the Atlantic.

The quartet will be there to introduce their film on the Thursday.

Tour Director Nell Teasdale said: “The Banff Tour is more than a series of exhilarating film nights. We guarantee that viewers will leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures too.”
