Doing Dry January?  Looking for something different to do with your friends at the weekends?  Kids too young to go with you to the gym but you want to get fit as a family?  The Nottingham Climbing Centre is launching a new Friends and Family programme on Sunday, which is the ideal introduction to indoor climbing.

During six two-hour sessions on Sundays, you'll learn about the basics of climbing including footwork, balance, how to belay, ropework and use of hand-holds and, because this programme is suitable for all ages and abilities, you'll be able to climb with your children, your friends, or even your parents! 

The full course costs £20, plus the usual entry fee of £8 for adults and £5 for children but people can book in for one session initially, if they’d like to give it a try without committing to the whole 6 weeks.

Date:   13th January 2019
Time:   3.00 to 5.00 pm
