Climb for free

When: 3rd June

Where: Blocfit, SW9 8RR

In their own words, Blocfit are “giving the cost of living the middle finger”, and don’t we all appreciate that. Their free climbing festival will have free climbing and coaching for everyone- perfect if you’ve never tried it out the sport before. But it’s not just climbing, there will be loads of other things going on like a discounted shoe sale, a membership flash sale and other vendors. Oh, and a cake sale for afterwards too.

Go to the Windrush edition of the Black Culture Market
