Stronghold is a state of the art climbing centre in Tottenham Hale with the largest bouldering wall in London. We gave 50 lucky residents the chance to learn how to climb for free.
Stronghold instructors ran an introduction to climbing session at 12pm on Saturday 9
September. All ages and abilities took part.
Climbers learnt the basics and then tried out their newly learnt skills on the climbing walls.
This year’s exhibition brought together community groups and businesses working in Tottenham. Information was available on everything from volunteering, to job opportunities and developments underway.

1-30pm: History of Brewing in Tottenham Walk – Jason Beazley
Jason led an entertaining and informative walk through Tottenham’s brewing past. From the ‘brew houses’ of the fourteenth century when ale was made from locally grown crops and the water of the Moselle to the modernisation of brewing and proliferation of pubs in the nineteenth century, walkers discovered how this important local industry that has come full circle as once again, Tottenham has been crowned London’s ‘craft-beer capital’.
Local films were shown between 12pm and 3pm at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre Cinema.
