Calling all our climbers and friends of Boulder Shack! We’re thrilled to announce that our beloved indoor bouldering gym is turning seven, and to celebrate we’re throwing an epic party that you won’t want to miss.

We would be delighted to see you at our “Birthday Bake-Off” as we mark this exciting milestone with climbing, creativity, and mouthwatering cakes.

Date: Saturday the 24th February 2024
Time: 1pm – 5pm
Cake cutting: 3pm

What Activities Will There Be?

What’s a party without fun and games? We want to make sure that this afternoon is filled with exciting things to do. From a chance to win a £50 gift card and a trophy, to enjoying party games and partner climbs, our aim for this day is for it to be special to all of us.

Here’s what we’ve got planned:

Come Dressed Up

In the spirit of fun, we’ve picked a theme for our fancy dress. Come to our birthday bash “dressed as something beginning with a ‘B’”.

Whether you show up as a buzzing bumblebee, a big boulder, a bunch of bananas, or a brilliant badger, let your imagination run wild and be part of the costume extravaganza!

Boulder Shack’s Community Bake-Off

Help us celebrate our birthday by baking us a cake! This is your chance to showcase your baking skills and whip up a cake that shows us what the heart and soul of Boulder Shack means to you.

Our panel of expert cake-eaters, better known as the Boulder Shack team, will evaluate the entries based on three criteria: appearance, taste, and overall wow-factor.

Each participant in the bake-off will receive a £25 Boulder Shack gift card as a token of our appreciation for your dedication and culinary talents.

Everybody likes a winner however, and therefore the grand prize for the best cake is not only the chance to take home a stunning Boulder Shack trophy, but also a £50 Boulder Shack gift card!

Each cake should be homemade and not store bought. Due to the nature of this event, we are unable to provide a list of allergens in each cake.

Games and Partner Climbing

We’ve lined up a fantastic array of games and activities that’s suitable for our climbers and friends of all ages. Whether you’re new to climbing or a seasoned professional, there’s something in store for everyone.

Challenge your friends in climbing games, test your agility, and create unforgettable moments on our climbing walls.

That’s A Wrap!

We’ve found it very hard to put into words just how excited we are to celebrate seven years of our incredible climbing community. From the day we opened our doors to now, watching people progress, welcoming new climbers, and making friends along the way.

Whether you’re scaling our walls, tackling the partner climb, or indulging in the scrumptious delights of the Bake-Off, this event embodies the spirit of Boulder Shack – a community of climbers coming together to celebrate the Shack’s birthday!

So, bake your tastiest cake, wear your best “B” costumes, lace up your climbing shoes, and join us on February 24th at Boulder Shack Southampton. Let’s make this birthday bash a day to remember, and here’s to many more years of climbing fun ahead!
