The Castle Arctic Xmas Party
The Castle's Christmas party is Arctic themed this year. Don your polar bear outfits or dust off your arctic explorers suit and dress up for the occasion! There will be plenty of prizes from both Marmot and Lyon Equipment for the best (and possibly worst) fancy dress costumes.
(entry to the party & film is free)
6pm Arctic Freeze
We'll be starting out in the garden, with a bonfire, weather permitting. Pizzas and beer will be on sale. Wrap up warm!
8.30pm The Last Climb (film)
Alistair Lee & Posing Productions. The film follows top adventure climber Leo Houlding, Jason Pickles and Sean 'Stanley' Leary as they attempt one of the most technically demanding climbs in one of the world's harshest environments.
There will be no chairs to sit on, it's a case of plonking your bum on the floor. You may want to bring a blanket. You WILL need a coat!
Posing Production's The Last Great Climb. Visit their Facebook page or website to find out more.
10.30pm (ish) Party Games
With prizes from Marmot & Lyon Equipment
11pm Resident DJ's Jamie & Jose through until 1am
We hope to see you all there!
