    Bring your kids to ROKT for a climbing session during October half term and mums go free!

    We are having a real push to get more ladies climbing so for October half term only ROKT will be running FREE taster sessions for ladies who sign their kids up to a holiday summit session.

    The two- hour long sessions will take place at the same time as the kids’ sessions so there is no need to worry about childcare. If you’ve never climbed before or want to get back into it, this two- hour long taster is perfect for you! One of our experienced, climbing instructors will guide you as you have a go at bouldering and roped climbing.

    We understand that paying out for the kid activities over half term is really expensive, so any mum or carer that has a child on the 2- hour summit session can climb for free!

    Costs

    Kids - holiday climbing session £16.00 per child (mum/carer climbs for free)

    Time slots 10.30am – 12.30 PM and 2.00pm -4.00pm

    Free ‘Taster Tours’ are available for individuals and couples on the first Sunday of the month (except January). Meet at 2pm opposite the Town Hall pediment on Halifax Road, OL14 5AQ Todmorden Town Hall straddles the Walsden Water and was situated in both Lancashire and Yorkshire until the county boundary was moved on January 1st 1888. Designed by John Gibson of Westminster, this Grade 1 listed building holds a strong place in the hearts of local people. Most iconic, from the outside, is the pediment. The carved stonework has two central female figures on a pedestal. The one on the left represents Lancashire (cotton spinning industry) and the one on the right Yorkshire (engineering and agriculture). Below the two figures are different friezes of the industries coming together to prosper on the border. Inside the building there is an old Magistrate’s Court which now serves as the Todmorden Town Council Chamber. The ballroom upstairs spans the length of the building and holds many memories for those who have attended the variety of events held in the Town Hall for over 140 years.
