The Big Shake Out is a great place to base your multi-activity weekend, meet up with a few friends and dip into the delights of Cliffhanger.
We are setting up camp on the edge of Sheffield, just minutes from the Peak District and a short walk from this year's Cliffhanger festival giving easy access to some of the best climbing in Britain, picturesque rivers, as well as miles of bridleways and footpaths for bikers and walkers to enjoy.
Head out during the day then join us in the evening for camping, food, films, live music and dancing.
This will be our first Big Shake Out and we are keeping things small and manageable, so ticket numbers are limited. We expect demand to be high so if you're thinking of coming we recommend not to delay. Tickets will allow you up to 3 nights camping on the campground, entry into Cliffhanger and the World Cup bouldering event, as well as access to all the entertainments at the Shake Out.
Facilities will include camping around a central entertainments marquee, you will be able to cook your own food on our communal BBQs, purchase cooked food from our kitchen and drinks from a licensed bar, watch films on Friday night and boogie to live music on Saturday night.
Tickets are available now through Alpkit.com.
