Hanging around Old Trafford

Calling all dare-devils with a head for heights!

Hanging around Old Trafford…

The Manchester United Abseil Challenge is back and we are giving you the chance to face your fears for charity this February.

The 140ft free-fall abseil will give you a fantastic bird’s eye view over the Theatre of Dreams and by taking part you will be making a huge difference to the lives of young people with life-limiting conditions and terminal illnesses. 

Anyone can take part in the challenge and you will be shown the ropes by our experienced abseil instructors.  There are limited spaces for each day so register early to avoid disappointment!
