Love big city life, love the outdoors? Think Cliffhanger – Sheffield’s inner-city festival dedicated to celebrating the outdoors.
Sheffield city centre will be transformed into a playground for outdoor adventure when the Cliffhanger festival returns this July. Taking place Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 July 2016, this year will be the first time the event is to be held across Sheffield City Centre with FREE entry for everyone.
Sheffield is the UK’s leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, city culture and rural escapes, and relocating the festival to the centre of The Outdoor City brings all of that together.
Events and activities will be spread across various locations such as the Peace Gardens, Barkers Pool and Devonshire Green, with dedicated areas for cycling, running and climbing as well as a host of other adventure activities available to try.
Once again, the highlight of the weekend will be the BMC British Bouldering Championships, where the nation’s strongest climbers will battle it out to be crowned king and queen of the wall. Set to take place on Devonshire Green, this national competition is free to watch and will be extended into the evening to take advantage of the warm weather. Make sure you come down for Qualifiers on Saturday and Semi-finals & Finals on Sunday.
Cliffhanger events will be taking place across the city centre 10am - 6pm Saturday and Sunday, while the British Bouldering Championships will be running 11am - 7pm both days. There will also be live music in the evening on Devonshire Green Friday night 8pm - 10pm and Saturday night 7pm - 10pm.
