The Beastmaker International Footless Festival (BIFF) returns to The Climbing Works on Saturday 26th January 2019. This year it is the Final of Tour de BIFF where qualification rounds were held here at The Climbing Works & The Castle in London.
The 5th year of BIFF at The Climbing Works will be bigger, with fewer feet and even more silly than the rest. We are planning a very special evening that will be great to compete in and a great evening to watch.
6.30pm Competitor registration opens
7pm Wall closes to the public & spectators are let back in
7.30 - 9.30pm Main Competition
10pm Competition Final
11pm-ish The end!
Being that this is the final of the Tour de BIFF, anyone wanting to compete in the final will have needed to qualify by having been in the top 10 at last years BIFF Final (held at the Climbing Works in Jan 2018) or top 10 in either of the 2 Tour de BIFF rounds held at the Castle in London or here at the Climbing Works in December 2018. Beastmaker also reserve the right to invite some wild cards, so if you missed the Tour rounds but are obscenely strong it may be worth getting in touch with them!
You'll need to pay your normal entry fee for the wall (we'd recommend coming in a bit early to warm up really well) and donate £10 to CAC (bring cash for this please!) when you sign in for the comp from 6.30pm.
The footless blocs will be even harder this year to make for better watching, hence the need for qualifications. No-one likes entering what they they was going to be a fun comp only to find they can't get off the ground!
BIFF is a very silly comp without the use of feet, so competitors must be over 16.
UPDATE 22/01/2019 - all spectator tickets are now sold out! You can still catch the grand final live stream on the 159 Show YouTube channel here though!
This event is for you guys! Due to limited space this is a ticketed event for spectators - all proceeds from this will go to CAC. Spectator tickets are £4 and are available below:
We'll have pizza available from Porter Pizza based in Sharrow Vale from 6.45pm, along with beers, mulled wine & our usual hot & cold drinks & snacks and you'll be able to watch plenty of strong people doing stupid and impressive stuff without any feet. Heckling is encouraged and will be spurred on by live commentary.
Some Most spectators will be drinking beer and Percy could say almost anything while he's commentating (we haven't got his filter working yet...), so this event isn't suitable for children!
