Moving to London for its 10th anniversary year, The Outdoors Show is the event of the year for anyone with a spirit of adventure and a love of nature, bringing the best of the outdoors, indoors!

This year for the first time, The Outdoors Show, The London Bike Show, and The Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show have joined forces to create the ultimate event for outdoor enthusiasts.

Held at London’s ExCeL, this new super-show will showcase all the best from the worlds of hiking, climbing, outdoors pursuits, travel, cycling and boating. With a host of top brands and experts on show, it’s the perfect place for any outdoors enthusiast to check out the latest kit and sharpen up on their knowledge. An Outdoors Show ticket will grant access to all three events, making it the perfect day out for all the family.

This year don’t miss the Outdoors Heroes Theatre where inspiring talks by some of Britain’s most daring explorers are taking place. Legendary expedition expert Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, survival specialist Ray Mears, wildlife expert Simon King and TV presenter and adventurer Ben Fogle will all be sharing tales of their exploits.*

Feeling adventurous? Then sharpen your crampons, dust off your ice axe and get climbing on the Outdoors Show’s dry ice climbing wall. No experience is necessary and ice climbing experts will be on hand to guide you to the summit. If this takes your fancy make sure you don’t miss the rock climbing walls at the show.

Back by popular demand is the spectacular SkyMasters competition, showcasing elite climbers as they race head-to-head on a floating overhanging course set in the rafters of ExCeL. Budding climbers can also have a go themselves on the overhanging Mini Masters wall.

On the 15th and 16th January The Outdoors Show will host The British Bouldering Championships. This form of rock climbing is low level and without ropes with climbers pushing themselves to the limits of what's possible on a rock face. So check out the action as the UK's top rock climbers battle it out to be crowned national champion. The competition has no qualification process, so if you're an accomplished climber then why not enter the competition yourself? The Thursday of the show will see schools from London and the South East competing in the London Schools Bouldering Championship.
