Women's Trad Festival 2021

We are extremely excited to announce that Women's Trad Festival 2021 will be held on 6-8th August in the Peak District - save the date! The ballot for tickets is now closed. Read on for more information about the different ticket types at this year's festival...

Ticket types

Learner ticket

Learners at WTF have the opportunity to develop a range of skills, tailored to your previous experience. These tickets are aimed at a range of abilities, from those who have never climbed before, to women who may even have some trad experience but want to build confidence.

Workshop tickets

There will be four workshops running this year. These are for climbers who already have some experience, allowing them to gain valuable new skills over the course of the weekend. These workshops are run by AMI, DMM and Mountain Training.

Parent & child tickets

This is an opportunity for a parent to attend the festival with their child or children, aged 8 to 18 years old. This workshop is aimed at getting you and your children climbing, both at the weekend and also equipping you with the skills to climb together afterwards.

How do I buy a ticket?

This year we are running a ticket ballot. This means that everyone who wants to attend the festival as a learner can apply, and successful climbers will be randomly selected from the applications. The ballot for this year's festival is now closed.

As well as a range of ticket types, there are several other supporting roles which we would not be able to

run the festival without:


These lovely ladies and men take our learner ticket holders out climbing. They all hold their RCI/SPA or above. They will spend the weekend teaching gear placements, building anchors, building confidence and some may get their learners leading.


All of our mentors are AMI (the Association of Mountaineering Instructors) instructors who have their MCI (Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors Award). They spend the weekend at the crags supporting our leaders, in a 1:3 ratio.

Core volunteers

We couldn't run the festival without these special people. They support us by making the festival the best it can be by keeping the site looking fabulous, running registration, selling mugs, and being generally brilliant all weekend.
