Wideboyz 2 - Slender Gentlemen - World Premiere - Friday 4th April 7.30pm
Following Sheffield climbers Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker the movie revolves around two questions: how did Tom and Pete cope with their new found fame after their ascent of the amazing Century Crack; and how did they move their climbing on from being known as the "weirdos who squeeze into spaces climbers shouldn't" to more recognisable activities.
