Love big city life, love the outdoors? Think Cliffhanger – Sheffield’s inner-city festival dedicated to celebrating the outdoors.

Sheffield city centre is transformed into a playground for outdoor adventure when Cliffhanger comes to town each July. For 2017, the event is being sponsored by the Sheffield BID and will see a host of FREE events and activities spread across various city centre locations such as the Peace Gardens, Barkers Pool, Millennium Square, Devonshire Green and the Winter Garden.

The festival will kick off from 5pm on the Friday evening in Devonshire Green with an evening of live music, activities, demonstrations and refreshments from a range of food and drink outlets.

Then, on Saturday and Sunday, Sheffield will be transformed into a giant outdoor playground, with professional demonstrations and activities in sports including climbing, mountain biking, running, skateboarding, orienteering and much more.

Once again, a star attraction will be the BMC British Bouldering Championships, where the nation’s strongest male and female climbers will battle it out on a purpose-build bouldering wall on Devonshire Green.

Admission to Cliffhanger is completely free.

More details will be announced in coming weeks- look out for the latest announcements on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Cliffhanger is a great opportunity for your brand to reach a wide audience in high footfall areas of the city.
