Sheffield Cliffhanger festival moving to Graves Park

DAREDEVILS can get active by exploring the countryside on their doorstep at a Sheffield festival which is moving venues this summer.

The annual Cliffhanger festival will be staged in Graves Park, rather than Millhouses Park, this year.

And the event on Saturday and Sunday July 7 and 8 will include runs and a 50km ‘sportive’ bike ride out into the Peak District.

Music, beer and camping are also included, but the event is billed as the ‘biggest outdoors festival for outdoors people’.

More than 20,000 people are expected to make the most of activities, including climbing and orienteering.

Other, more unusual activities include bike polo and slacklining – similar to tightrope walking but with a slack rope. The British Bouldering Championships and even diving – with a temporary pool to be installed – are also lined up.

Sheffield Council has organised the festival with Heason Events and Rat Race Adventure Sports, with the support of Welcome to Yorkshire.

Entry to Cliffhanger, excluding camping and some events, costs £7.50 for adults and is free for under-16s.
