Cliffhanger is one of the UK’s largest outdoor outdoor-pursuits festivals, based in one of Sheffield’s biggest green spaces. We’re pretty sure that it’s actually the UK’s biggest outdoor festival for outdoor folk, with over 20,000 visitors in 2
The aim of the event is to Inspire & Involve. Featuring elite competitions and / or professional demonstrations in rock climbing, orienteering, mountain biking, running, slacklining, adventure racing and more, visitors are able to watch incredibly talented sports-people of all ages at the top of their game, and then take part in the very sports they have just been inspired by.
The activities are aimed at people of ALL ages.
A few words from our Patron Joe Simpson –
Legendary mountaineer and rock climber Joe Simpson is patron to Cliffhanger. Joe, who lives in Sheffield and has enjoyed recent further TV success with the film Beckoning Silence, said
“I am proud to be patron of the Cliffhanger event in my home city. It is really appropriate that Sheffield City Council is organising such a major event, as it is ideally placed to become the outdoor activities capital of this country, with a significant part of the city being within the Peak District National Park – this country’s most popular national park offering so many outdoor pursuits on the doorstep.
I have been fortunate to be able to climb in many countries around the world, but I always love returning to Sheffield and the nearby Peak District, which has now become the home of many other climbing enthusiasts.”
