Special Events

Our indoor climbing special events are legendary. We like to organise a whole host of special bouldering events from competitions, to Friday night pizza evenings, student nights, Christmas parties and guest climber sessions.

Friday 28th July brings us the final of the Summer Lab Test 2017. This event compiles the results of all your previous rounds efforts ( excluding your lowest scoring round ) to crown the top three male and female competitors.

Our comp finals are more than just a climbing competition though, we always put a big emphasis on the PARTY vibes with kegs of beer from North Brewing Company, loads of raffle prizes and giveaways from our event sponsors, great music and professional lighting.

So whether your climbing, spectating or just want to get involved with the party there’s something for everyone.

Emma Twyford will be here setting the problems all day with climbing competition climbing starting between 5 and 6pm. you have until 9pm to complete as many problems as possible and submit your score sheets with the winners being announced at 9:30pm.

If you have a raffle ticket (which includes anyone who has entered a league round) make sure you are here at 9:30 to claim your raffle prizes! if your not here you cant win!!!

Every day during this Easter, we are running taster sessions for your future wannabe climbing hero kids! The cost is £7 and it’s available in 2 age classifications:

Tenaya Boot Demo

We like quality equipment and are pleased to announce a special climbing boot demo with Tenaya. They will be around on the 18th April at 5pm and armed with a generous 20% discount, what’s not to like.


Free Pizza

End your week on a high. Come to the Lab for a climb, it’s a great way to keep fit and we will do our best to keep your energy levels high with a couple of slices of pizza from our friends at Mod Pizza.

The time is 8pm, so make sure you get plenty of routes in both and after!

Student Wednesdays

Use the downtime after lectures to come and unwind with a climb or two or twenty. We are within easy walking distance from the universities and every Wednesday, you can climb all day for just £5 with shoe hire included.

Free Coaching Tuesdays

Got a climb you have been struggling with for weeks? Or, wanting a few tips to start training to push your grade up a bracket? We like progression and we love teaching you. Every Tuesday from 6pm one of our resident coaches will be on hand to work through routes and offer advice on all things climbing.

What’s more, it’s totally free! Be a part of the Climbing Lab community.

Ladies Night


Women are just as good as men and often better than men at climbing – fact! But as a sport female participation tends to fall well behind the men’s and we don’t like that. That is why every Monday night, we are proud to announce, it’s Ladies Night.

Starting at 4pm, you can climb with an entry fee of just £5, so come on down and get climbing.

And don’t worry guys, you are still welcome.
