On Thursday 25th April, join us for the Sheffield premiere of Statement of Youth and a Q&A with stars of the film Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon and Martin 'Basher' Atkinson.
Doors open at the Mowbray at 7:30 pm and the film starts at 8 pm. Afterwards there will be a chance to ask those burning questions and reminisce about the good old days at the bar!
After the final screening dates, the film will be released on Friday 17th May for free on UKC.
Watch the trailer below:
The 1980's saw climbing standards rise exponentially. At the start of the decade, 7b+ was cutting edge, but by the end of the 80's 9a was the new world standard. By the end of the decade, the sport had changed beyond recognition and a paradigm was set for future generations.
A small group of climbers would do anything to climb full-time: sleeping in sheds underneath crags, shoplifting for food and clothes, and living off the dole. These climbers were living outside the rest of society and went on to become the most influential figures in the history of British climbing.
