Wondering about going and watching the trailer enhanced this desire.

Right, lets get some organising done for this. I think the best plan is to climb saturday and sunday morning/afternoon and then head to watch some films on saturday and sunday evening.

Programme is here: http://www.shaff.co.uk/programme-at-a-glance/

More detail here: http://www.shaff.co.uk/programme-detail/

On Saturday we can probably see either Climbing Films 1 / Climbing Films 2 / Steve McClure Lecture / Bike Films 2 / Arc'teryx Adventure Shot in some combination depending on how late we climb and then stay for some live music or hit the pub if we like.

On Sunday we could probably see Adventure Medley 2 / Adrenaline Films / All I Can (Whatever that is).

My personal choice would be for Climbing Films 2 on Saturday and then live music and pub and then Adventure Medly 2 on the Sunday followed by a swift departure to hopefully get home before midnight.

All films are 5.50 for students and 7.70 for real people and there is some deals for buying lots together. Dave has emailed the guy and was told to book if we want to see something specific. so we could just rock up on the day and hope for the best if people prefer.

Either way we're going climbing in the peak. I'm happy to drive. Who's in?

Charlie
Dave
Alan
Andy
Ali

Tiffany?
Tom?
Marc?
John?

We won't make you do the same routes every week tom there is probably enough in the peak for you to do different stuff every week :)

Do we need to buy tickets in advance to this or can we just rock up on the day?
