Films & Events this Autumn

21 Oct 2013 16:00

Every year we run a number of awesome films. lectures & events in the Autumn at The Climbing Works. We do it to showcase interesting climbing features that you, our regulars, would not get the chance to see otherwise. The Reel Rock tour is a prime example. We were the first people to show it in the UK 6 years ago and we've shown it every year since to full audiences.

This Autumn / Winter we have an even bigger series of event taking place within The Climbing Works. Last night we began with the first of 2 screenings of this years Reel Rock 8 tour. A full crowd enjoyed seeing some of the latest climbing films showcasing the sport in all its many forms. The next screening is on 3rd November so you get a second chance to catch the tour if you missed out last night. Below is the list, and info, regarding what else is happening in the coming weeks:

Peak Rock book launch: Sun 1st Dec

A book in the making for years and what a book. A detailed look at the history, and its leading players, of Peak District rock climbing. From early pioneers to recent heroes, encompassing it all - grit, limestone, trad, sport and bouldering - it's all in there. The night itself will have 4 leading players from the 70's onwards - John Allen, Ron Fawcett, Jerry Moffatt & Pete Whittaker - onstage. Legends of the sport, and not just in the Peak Distirct, this will be a one-off chance to hear them on stage being interviewed by Niall Grimes.
