We meet at Morton Lab, which is part of the old Umist campus, not far from Piccadilly train station. The meeting spot is directly over the road from the Manchester Macdonald hotel. This is off London road. The postcode is M1 2PG. We usually meet on Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 6pm and Saturdays from 10:30am

Here's the location on google maps

Here's a picture of a giant walrus... i hope this helps clear things up a bit.

Hey, I came on Thursday and came this morning but annoyingly didn't have any change to pay the pay and display. So was just wondering if any one else who drives could recommend somewhere free to park on Saturday morning?

Driving is my only means of getting here really, tuesday and thursday were fine as I just parked on grosvenor street but today I couldn't find anywhere?

Grosvenor Street is free on Saturdays. There is nowhere else nearby where you can park for free.

You can stay and play for free.

If you want structured sessions etc there's a class on mondays at http://www.thecircushouse.co.uk/ :mrgreen:

All of the outdoor sessions are free, because they're not structured classes. Anyone is welcome to come along though, and we'll obviously do our best to help get you started. As Adam said, the only structured sessions are at the Circushouse at the times listed in the timetable on their website.

hey im really interested in parkour and did gymnastics for numerous years...but now i think i can finally start trying it since exams are nearly over, but i have a couple of questions, sorry if this is in the wrong thread. im still trying to navigate the site..
~whats the average age of people training here? (im 17 in september)
~whats the average standard? like i said ive never done actual parkour bar a few combo jumps here and there, but i did gymnastics.
~the seriously pathetic thing...i play rugby for Ireland so i have to weigh a lot for that, im 16 stone, thats not an issue for me, im fit and have a lot of strength from it..also means i can take a beating but would that be an issue? XD and now the question.. do you think i'll be able to do it well enough?

Thanks, Dan

*i put this on another thread, not sure if that one will be seen, last post on it was from feb or something so ill put it on here as well*

Howdy. I came a few years ago but an injury and my continued laziness has kept me away for a long time. A fellow from work showed an interest and we're looking to come along.

I was just wondering if you guys still do the beginners Sunday? Otherwise we'll probably try and come along on a Thursday or Saturday.

P.S. Saw the strength conditioning part 2 on youtube - that was pretty funny! Must be the calcium.
P.P.S Shame about Circus House, that looked pretty cool - well done to the guys that built it
