ABSEIL AT TWENTYTWO

Calling all daredevils! A truly unique opportunity to abseil down Twentytwo, at 22 Bishopsgate, a brand new skyscraper currently under construction in the heart of the City and set to become the tallest building in the Square Mile at 62 storeys and 972ft when complete.
The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Charles Bowman, is personally taking on this thrilling, adrenaline-fuelled vertical drop and he invites you to join him for this incredible challenge. It requires core muscle strength, a good sense of balance and the ability to control your nerves as you make your descent. A team of experts will be on hand to show you the ropes and you will abseil down alongside a qualified instructor who will put you at ease. The abseil is open to everyone who is reasonably fit and healthy, no previous experience needed.
Join your fellow abseilers afterwards for cocktails, celebrating your amazing achievement at this extraordinary new City landmark.
ONLY 50 PLACES AVAILABLE. The registration fee is £35 with a minimum sponsorship of £5,000 per participant. Please note that the registration fee is non-refundable. The abseil will take place from 2-5pm with cocktails from 5-8pm. Book here
