We're tying in with The Castle's launch of special women's climbing events with an afternoon of climbing, illustration and an optional Women in Adventure film night. Talk about an action packed Saturday!
The Castle are running a new women’s bouldering session every Thursday 7-9pm called the Women’s Bouldering Social. To launch this, they are hosting an event on the 15th September to celebrate. We're going to join them whilst adding a little something of our own. Our Gather gal Coralie Huon is both an experienced, well traveled climber and a talented illustrator - drawing quite literally from her climbing experiences. She will share with us her story with climbing and show us her exhibition currently on display at The Castle right before we lace up and try out some bouldering for ourselves!
In the evening, The Castle are hosting a Women in Adventure film tour. It'll be right there are the venue but is limited to 90 tickets, so you'll need to purchase yours promptly if you'd like to stay on to watch the film.
