Parent & Child

Parent & Child tickets are available to parents who want to attend the festival as a Learner, and their child (aged 8-18) will climb in a group of other children. Read on for more information about who these tickets are for, and what's included. 

Parent & Child ticket

Who is this ticket for?

This ticket is for you if:
- You and your child (or children) both wish to learn or develop trad climbing skills. 
- You’d like a degree of independence for you and your child, whilst also wanting to share an exciting experience together. 
- You hope to meet other climbing parents! 
- Your child is keen to meet and climb with other young climbers. 
- You would like to attend the festival as a Learner (see page for more info)


Children must be between 8-18. You MUST be the parent or guardian of the children attending.

What's included?

This ticket gives the parent two days of expert, bespoke guidance with an experienced trad leader, in a 1:2 ratio alongside one other learner of similar ability to you. This other Learner is likely to be a parent also and your group will climb in the same area as your children.

Your child will join a group in a maximum 6:1 ratio, led by 2 experienced, qualified instructors, who regularly work with children at a local Sheffield climbing wall. 

You and your child will also have the opportunity to borrow any gear you need from our sponsors, including shoes, harness and helmets.

Tickets include Friday and Saturday night camping, a brightly coloured and ethically produced WTF2020 t-shirt, a sustainable goody bag filled with surprises from our sponsors, exclusive access to discounts with an independent retailer, Outside, and the opportunity to take part in various workshops and conversation sessions throughout the weekend.

PLEASE NOTE: We are an off-grid festival! You will need to bring a tent/camping equipment and be ready for a weekend without hot water, showers or anywhere to charge your phone. We encourage you to use the festival as an opportunity for a digital detox. We have private cold water washing facilities and gender-neutral loos on site. A limited number of van tickets will be available at an additional cost of £20.

Price: £230 for 1 parent and 1 child, £300 for 1 parent and 2 children

The ballot for tickets will open on 15th March. Please check back then to apply for a ticket.
