Redpoint Worcester – Bloctoberfest 2018
6th October 2018 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pm BST£9.50
Back for its third year, BLOCTOBERFEST 2018 is coming!
This October 6th, Redpoint Worcester will be hosting Bloctoberfest for the 3rd year in a row! This year the plans are a little more interesting, with the big focus being on… you guessed it, yep, YOU! Previous years have focused around the bouldering comp, whereas this year we are going to be concentrating on delivering a selection of workshops for you to get involved with, developing your skills and knowledge with the RPW team and external sponsor reps.
We also have the absolute pleasure of being a venue for the La Sportiva Climb-In-Gym Tour 2018! That’s right you heard us, La Sportiva! This tour gives YOU the opportunity to try on a pair of beautiful La Sportiva climbing shoes and put them to test straight away on the walls! And if that wasn’t enough, the first 100 people that come through the doors receive a FREE La Sportiva t-shirt! As I sit and write this I find myself in one from the last tour that passed through, truly remarkable!
To allow you to realise the full potential of the wonderful creations that the angels of La Sportiva have blessed your feet with, we will be running a series of workshops that really hone in on the importance of footwork in climbing technique.
Alongside La Sportiva and our workshops, we will be running the famous Bloctoberfest bouldering competition! There will be individual and team problems with prizes to suit, along with spot prizes for all manner of reasons that we are not at liberty to disclose. Although I’m sure all those within the Earl Grey Posse are very much looking forward to taking the best dressed title away again! How about we band together and make it difficult for them this year!?
Boof’s Café will also be serving a special menu, along with serving beer from the fully licensed bar. Come to think of it, we have pretty much thought of everything, we have food, beer, climbing and some seriously good tunes lined up. For those who are not familiar with the centre we also have free parking (along with Shrub Hill train station just down the road), free WIFI, changing and shower facilities and lockers to store your gear. There are also plenty of lovely B&B’s and hotels to stay in as well, for those looking to head in to Worcester and take advantage of the nightlife.
