A dedicated space for young people and families. 

We built the Mini Works for adults and young people to climb in a welcoming and safe environment, whether discovering bouldering for the first time or pushing themselves on the harder circuits.

Don't have any climbing experience? Book a supervisor induction so that you can supervise your children in the centre.

Update: It is no longer necessary to prebook your Mini Works session unless you require a supervisor induction. 



If you are not a climber and would like to supervise under 18s in the Mini Works, you can attend a Supervisor Induction.

Any adult who wishes to supervise must attend this induction, unless they are an experienced climber.  

Supervisor inductions run at the following times:

Mon-Fri- term time- 10:30, 16:30 & 18:30

Mon-Fri- half term- 10:30, 12:30, 14:30 & 16:30

Weekend- 12;00, 14:00. 16:00

How long will it take?

The supervisor induction will take 10 - 15 minutes and you will be able to climb afterwards.

Select the relevant option below and choose the dates and times to book your session. If none of the times suit, give us a call on 0114 250 9990 and we'll see what we can do.
