What's happening during the week?

We've teamed up with Nottingham Girls Can and Lianne Harrold to bring a week filled with climbing activity. You can find out more about Lianne on Instagram, and look out for her new website launching during Womens Sport Week.

Nottingham Climbing Centre are offering taster sessions for women to try climbing and bouldering throughout the week, all for a bargain price.

The Depot Nottingham are holding some taster bouldering sessions perfect for those who would like to try bouldering for the first time.

Monday 19th June - An evening bouldering session for those who climb indoors, and have tried climbing outdoors a couple of times. Athe session will take place at Burbage South which is within a hours drive from Sheffield, so a perfect way to spend a Monday evening.
