"Now in its fourth year, Women's Trad Festival is fast becoming a landmark and highly sought-after date in the climbing diary. Last year's 3-minute sell-out was - unbelievably - topped this year by tickets being snapped up immediately. In the time it took to refresh the page, the tickets for Women's Trad Festival 2019 were already sold out!"
"The fourth annual Women's Trad Fest took place in the sunny Peak District last weekend. It’s a festival largely aimed at beginners and learners, many of whom can already climb but want to learn trad skills in a safe, friendly environment. This year it was run as a BMC event to deliver what must be one of the bigger climbing festivals of its type to be found anywhere."
"It was really the incredible energy with everyone there. It’s a very huggy festival. I must have had about 300 hugs over the weekend.
We aim to create a great space for people to realise the possibilities that trad climbing affords them, free from the typical expectations of what a festival event is about."
Over 300 women (and men!) attended the fourth annual festival, with a plethora of
new ticket types available.
In an effort to make our festival as environmentally friendly as possible we'd love to minimise the number of cars at the festival. This space has been created for you to discuss lift-sharing to and from the festival.
