Brit Rock Film Tour

30th November @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£9.50 – £13.50

Intro and & Q&A with Filmmaker Alastair Lee.

A special gala event screening of the Brit Rock Film Tour 2024 (Brit Rock VI).

Film maker Alastair Lee will host the evening in his inimitable style. There will also be athlete appearances and sponsor give-aways.

This year’s films include; ‘Nose Job’ one of the biggest climbing stories in years as ex-competition climbers Billy Rydal and Alex Waterhouse take on the ambitious project of trying to be the first Briton’s to free climb the Nose on El Capitan, Yosemite. Not only do they have no big walling experience they have also barely climbed a multi-pitch route between them. Watch in disbelief as our two young upstarts blow the doors off the bank of possible.

‘Close Encounters of the Blind’. Blind climber Jesse Dufton ably supported by his wife and sight guide Molly takes on his great challenge yet, the notoriously tough and sustained route ‘Matador’ on the iconic Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. All does not go to plan as it soon becomes clear Jesse has bitten off more than he can chew, what unfolds is a truly gripping ascent with blind leader falls and a lesson is guts, drive and determination.
