The multi-award winning adventure trilogy from Posing Productions comes to Tyneside Cinema on the 9th July 2015


Featuring Leo Houlding and team on three amazing adventures spanning the Arctic to Antarctica via the depths of the Amazon jungle;

'The Last Great Climb', 'Autana', and 'The Asgard Project' -


These days are aimed at young climbers and their families who wish to experience and learn the skills required to climb outdoors. No prior climbing experience is required – just a reasonable level of general fitness and good health.

Mums and Dads are encouraged to take part and have a go – but it is absolutely fine to simply come and watch and perhaps bring a picnic and make a day of it. Cost includes transport, expert instruction & equipment hire. Places are limited so booking is essential via reception.


Between 1st June & 31st August we will be going back to our summer opening hours:

Monday to Friday: 12noon - 10pm

Saturday: 9am - 8pm

Sunday: 10am - 8pm

Never been climbing and fancy a go?

A fully qualified instructor will cover the basics and get you climbing on the walls as much as you can. All equipment provided.

These one hour sessions are available to individuals 5 years upwards and can be booked at any time.
