Whats On

Red Spider will be running a programme of COVID-secure coaching: carefully developed in-line with the latest guidance and restrictions from the government.

This includes:

  • Kids climbing sessions: Termly & Holiday Clubs
  • Family Taster Sessions & Group Taster Sessions including child(ren) and one parent per family

Our termly clubs are a very popular way to get your kids climbing regularly! With two types of clubs to choose from, we have something for every child aged 4 and up. 

  • NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme) courses begin at age 7, and participants will work their way through five levels of the scheme, learning how to eventually be an independent and competent climber. 
  • Fun Clubs are for kids aged 4+ and are great for confidence building and having a good fun climbing session each week.  

Spring-Summer Term: Please note that the April Term (staring Monday 19th April) is underway. If you have any queries about booking please contact the team who will do our best to help you or can add you to our mailing list: // 01329 282923

We have a great selection of Casual and Holiday Clubs for your kids to enjoy. All of these sessions require no previous climbing experience, so are a great way to experience climbing for the first time. Many people return to these climbing sessions time and time again at the weekends or in school holidays! 

  • Creepy Crawlies: For those aged 4-6 years, this one-hour session is a great way to introduce kids at a young age to climbing. These are small sessions with only 4 participants per instructor. 
  • Arachnids: For kids aged 7-12 years, this session will have up to 6 participants per instructor and is an hour and a half long. These sessions focus on trying a little bit of everything and most importantly, having fun! 

Our Youth Access Test is for 14-17 year olds who have experienced bouldering, climbing or top roping and now feel ready to use Red Spider without the supervision of an Adult or Instructor

Candidates should be confident that they have the skill set to pass the test. 

If you need a refresher before taking the test we would recommend booking a instructed lesson (taster session) with two people to brush up on your skills.

You do not need to pre-book if you: 

  • Are a regular climber at one of our Spider centres who doesn’t require supervision or an instructor; You will not need to pre-book for casual climbing at any of our centres. 
  • Have a U.A.T* and used to climb with friends who also have U.A.T’s; You will not need to pre-book to come climbing at any of our centres. 
  • Climb under the supervision of an Adult friend who is a competent climber; You will not need to pre-book for casual climbing. Just sign in with your supervisor as normal. Please note: climbing under the supervision of an adult friend is only allowed if from the same household.
