We're going big on ShAFF this year and that means our members can get 15% off tickets. The 2017 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival will be presented by the BMC at the Showroom Cinema on 17-19 March.

Building on our long-standing support of the festival, the BMC is proud to present this year's Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) as we feel the event is the perfect embodiment of what we and our members love. ShAFF will give us the opportunity to promote the activities of our 82,700 strong adventure-seeking membership.
 
With films reflecting the full range of core activities that the BMC represents, from mountaineering and bouldering through to trail running and hiking, we hope to connect with as many of our members as possible. And to make sure you don't miss out, all BMC members get 15% off the price of tickets if they book over the phone or in person.
