FitFeb Indoor Climbing Taster Sessions

Posted on 25-09-2017 by Cecily Stevenson

As part of our FitFeb programme, there’s a fantastic opportunity for you to try indoor climbing and bouldering at our free taster sessions at Redpoint Climbing Centre in Birmingham City Centre.

In October our three groups achieved some fantastic roped climbs and bouldering with the guidance of their instructors. Would you like to have a go in February?

These taster sessions are perfect for beginners and newcomers to the sport and are open to anyone over the age of 18 in the LGBT community.

Tickets are limited – please only book if you are confident you will be able to attend. If you do book and realise you can’t make it after all, please either cancel your booking via Eventbrite or email activate@blgbt.org as soon as you can, so that someone else can have the place.

We may get in touch to ask you to reconfirm your attendance nearer the time to make sure that places aren’t wasted and we’ll operate a waiting list if needed.

Do sign up if you want to attend, even if the event is full, as if enough people want to climb we may be able to book another instructor for you!
