INTRODUCING THE KEEPERS | WILD SWIMMER VIVIENNE RICKMAN-POOLE

 

The Keepers is a series of films made by The Good Life Experience telling the story of the festival through the people involved; the keepers of the craft, of the traditions, of The Good Life. This first film features Vivienne Rickman-Poole, who will lead lake swimming and creative sessions in the brand new Lake area at The Good Life Experience in September. Watch it here, and join Viv in September.

Viv is an artist, educator and outdoor swimmer. She has lived in the mountains of Snowdonia for 15 years. Her project #swimsnowdonia was listed amongst 'The 10 most inspiring adventures' in The Guardian and has been the focus of several short films including a music video for the band Elbow. Her film 'Afterglow' won Best Woman in Adventure Gold Award at Sheffield Adventure Film Festival. Vivienne was included in the first San Miguel Rich List, 'a unique list of men and women who value experiences over any possession’ and has recently been listed as one of 'Britains 101 most inspiring Adventurers’. She is Ambassador for The Outdoor Swimming Society.

Early bird festival tickets are available.
