Price changes from 1st February 2019

11 Jan 2019

We’re making some changes to our pricing structure from 1/2/2019.  Please see below for more details.

 

Changing entry types

We’re streamlining a few entry types as our entry options had spiralled somewhat! Under 8 pricing is gone, but we limited the price increases to U14s & introduced an U14 Off Peak rate.  Student Wednesdays are gone, but if you get in before 1pm it’s cheaper on super off-peak now anyway. Any new options are in green in the table below, anything we're removing is in red.

Full memberships by standing order will stay at the current rate until your renewal date.

 

Family memberships

Minimum 1 parent & 1 child.
These have changed so you’d pay the standard price for the first membership (adult or concession) and then extra family members are ‘bolted on’ at a reduced rate. This means it’s now comparatively cheaper to have 1 child than 2 and 3 children than 4.  For comparison the prices for the old style memberships calculated with the new bolt on system are included in brackets in green in the table below.

For customers paying by standing order this price change will take effect at renewal.

 

Why?

While we always try to keep our prices as low as possible unfortunately our costs, such as staff pay, suppliers & service providers, continually increase over time.

Since opening in 2006 we have continually updated and remodelled sections of wall in the main centre and expanded and updated the training facilities available to you, including the Beastmaker Motherboard, Beastmaker 1000 Board and a remodelled training area.

In 2012 we opened the Mini Works the first large scale facility aimed primarily at younger climbers.

In December we expanded into Unit E, offering a further climbing area focused on harder competition & project focused bouldering and a strength & conditioning suite.

For reference our standard entry price will have increased from £6.50 in December 2006 to £8.50 in February 2019.  If we’d increased our entry prices continually based on UK inflation from 2006 to 2018 we’d be at around £9.14 for a standard entry.

In terms of adult annual memberships these have increased from £300 in 2006 to £405 in 2019, again if based on inflation these would be at around £434.
