Event information

Calling all daredevils and those with a head for heights, come & join us at Derby Cathedral as our charity abseil returns on Sat 3 Oct 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!

There's a cost of £20 to sign up and all participants are required to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship.

The abseil is suitable for children aged 11-years-old and upwards, as well as adults.

This event is hosted by Derby Cathedral

The most visited attraction in Derby, its monuments and history, undertaking tours of the tower and enjoying its calm reflective environment.
