Derby Cathedral Abseil

Calling all daredevils and those with a head for heights, come and join us at Derby Cathedral as our charity abseil returns on Saturday 3 October 2020.

For one day only, you'll have the chance to climb the 189 steps to the top of the cathedral's tower. Here you'll be harnessed up, before climbing over the edge and abseiling the 212ft back down - you're bound to feel an adrenaline rush afterwards!

This challenge will give you spectacular views across Derby as you stand at the top of the tower, the chance to see the clock-face up close as you abseil down, while every penny you raise in sponsorship will help make magical memories for local children and young people with life-limiting conditions. 

Our abseil is available from 9am until 5.30pm and you'll be asked your preferred time slot when booking. This event always proves popular with children and adults alike, so be quick - you won't want to miss out!

Keeping you safe: Covid-19 Precautions:

We have taken necessary steps to make sure that this event is able to take place in a Covid-safe way. As such, along with social distancing being implemented, there will be a strict one-way system in place on the day, with hand sanitising stations available at registration, before you abseil and when you finish.

There will also be minimal contact from the instructors, who'll be wearing face coverings during any harnessing and testing of equipment.
