Emma Twyford and The Big Bang: coming to a Facebook Watch Party

Posted by Alex Messenger on 08/04/2020

Join us to watch the award-winning BMC TV Big Bang film in a Facebook Watch Party on Friday 17 April. Then chat to top climber Emma Twyford and filmmaker David Petts if you've got any questions.

Last September, when Emma Twyford powered, crimped and screamed her way to the top of The Big Bang at Lower Pen Trywn, she ended a three-year battle and entered British climbing’s history books as the first British woman to break the 9a barrier.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by British Mountaineering Council (@teambmc) on

David of Volo Digital was along for the journey from the very beginning, and his collaboration with BMC TV brought home Best Climbing Film at Kendal Mountain Festival in November 2019.

Thanks to the support of Patagonia, we were taking Emma Twyford, David Petts and Niall Grimes on tour. Now we're bringing it to a one-off Facebook Watch Party on Friday 17 April at 8pm. 

A Watch Party is where we can all watch the film at the same time, share comments and ask Emma Twyford and David Petts questions in real time.

WATCH: The Big Bang here at 8pm on Friday 17 April

It's free to watch, but if you'd like to make a donation, then check out The Climate Project: a new BMC initiative to combat climate change on our moorlands.

A big thanks to the sponsors

This BMC TV/Volo Digital film wouldn’t exist without the generous support of DMM, Scarpa, Climbskin and FrictionLabs. Big thanks to Patagonia for their support in helping us create the tour, even though it ended up being cancelled due to the Coronavirus.

What with the things they have done to our democracy and the way the spy on us: ( https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80117542 ) Some of us aren't that keen on joining Facebook. Any chance we could stream to some other services next time?
