Derby Cathedral Abseil 2018

Take on the Derby Cathedral Abseil, see Derby like never before and help support our children, young people and families.

Do you dare take on the Derby Cathedral Abseil?

Whether you've got a head for heights, you're feeling adventurous or you're looking to challenge yourself, our Derby Cathedral Abseil is guaranteed to get the heart racing and the adrenaline flowing.

Harness up on Saturday 19 October and take on this fantastic challenge, which will give you views of Derby like never before - while seeing you help our children, young people and families.

This fantastic abseilling event will require you to walk up the 189 steps of the second highest cathedral tower in the country. Once at the top of the historic tower, you’ll step over the edge and abseil the 212ft back to the ground – giving you an adrenaline rush like no other. We’re certain when your feet touch the ground again, you’ll want to have another go.

Our Derby Cathedral Abseil is available from 8.30am until 5.30pm on the day, and you’ll be asked your preferred time slot when booking. Interested in taking part in this fantastic challenge event or looking for more information? Call Alison Furlong on 01509 638006 or click here to email.
