10th Birthday – Black Out Event
On the 3rd February Redpoint will be 10 years old!
To celebrate we will be hosting our annual Birthday Bash but going bigger and better than ever!
After lots of climbing shinanigans during the day the lights will go out and the music cranked up for our very first climbing party under UV, lazer lights and head torches.
We will be turning off the main lights and turning on the UV. So paint yourself up with your favorite colour UV paint, put on your brightest shell suit along with your favourite torch and climb/dance the night away. After all that refresh yourselves at the fully licenced bar (ID will be required) and treat yourself to some grub up in Boof’s Café.
Prizes for best costume / UV face painting. Make sure you bring some UV paint and glow sticks with you!
10th Birthday Party Night
We will be continuing into the night with our 10th birthday celebrations. If you’re not already here with us come down for a drink and dance your socks off till the early hours. There will be a prize for the best costume ( remember we have UV lights) and a Jedi master dancer trophy.
