We are back for 2019-2020

Hi all,

We are very proud to announce the Season 8 dates.

This year we take a break from the legends at Boulder Brighton and head over to a BRAND NEW centre in Bristol - FlashPoint!

It's so exciting as at the time of writing the wall is still in the early days of construction. The four other venues remain as legendary as ever and we cannot wait to have a massive season kick-off at the epic Harrowall, before going big and shiny in Bristol. Then, after Christmas, we move onto the party peoples favourite Yonder before finishing up with the classics tour - Mile End and Castle.

We have many exciting plans for this coming season and if season 7 was our best yet just wait for season 8.

Tickets will go on sale via Eventbrite in early October.

Keep in the loop for more news as it comes up.

Cheers
Team Blokfest
