Welcome to 2014! To bring in the new year, we're building a live willow dome in the garden on Saturday the 18th of January from 11am to 4pm. Come along to watch, learn and help out. Please email email@example.com for more information or if you are intending to participate as there are limited spaces.
We're also back to the usual volunteer days: Mondays and Thursday between 11am and 4pm if you want to get some fresh air and help out.
Imagine climbing amongst all your friends, big tunes, great atmosphere, fun challenges, the latest and best climbing holds, and give-aways galore – this is Blokfest and it's coming to the Castle on Saturday 15th February.

Are you aiming to improve your climbing this year? We want to help you make the most of all the great new areas we're opening up and feel great about your climbing with the launch of our new coaching products coming soon in March 2014.
Tim Emmett, one of the most psyched climbers of all time, was recently at The Castle Climbing Centre on behalf of Mountain Hardwear delivering drytooling masterclasses in The Quarry and later giving his talk 'The Perfect Storm'. Tim has waived his fees so that we can donate profits to the Breathtakers OB Trust charity.

Another great short video by Ben Grubb, capturing the excitement of the day. And just like The Loft opening, this was worth the wait!
In the run up to the Castle’s Arctic themed Christmas party being held on Saturday 14th December, we’re holding a raffle, with some great prizes on offer to the lucky winners.
So what’s the reason behind the Arctic theme and what is the raffle raising money for, you may ask?
