How to Get Involved

Join the abseil adventure and descend from the top of Exeter Cathedral’s Norman North Tower.

We are looking for adventurous people to get involved in our sponsored abseiling event to help raise funds for the building of our new Cloister Gallery. The new structure will connect the Cathedral with the 13th century Chapter House and Pearson Building, making us a better place for community gatherings, events and much more.

The Exeter Cathedral abseil will take place on Saturday 4 May 2024. Participants aged 14-18 must have a parent present on
the day.

There is a fee of £20 to register and participants must be willing to raise a minimum of £500 towards Exeter Cathedral’s 2020s Development Appeal via Just Giving.

This challenge is organised by Dave Talbot Adventures and  supported by Apex Scaffolding and Exeter College.
