In April 2011 we put on the first 'Freemove Parkour Roadshow, visiting: Tonbridge, Reading, Birmingham, Stockport and Livingston to showcase a small selection of our industry leading Parkour training facility elements.

Many people attended the road shows, with over 500 people using the equipment over the 5 days. The positive feedback we received was phenomenal.

The success of the Roadshow prompted many local authorities and event organisers to request similar events all over the country.

We now offer small or large, single day and multiple day packages with our Roadshow equipment. This includes the elements, safety surfacing and coaching by leading practitioners.

More than 2000 people used the equipment at the 'Freemove Parkour Roadshow' event over a weekend at Camp Bestival in 2011, here is what people are saying about the Roadshow and Parkour in general:

"I think that these facilities that have been developed through the Freemove concept are and absolutely fantastic way for young teenagers and adults to develop their own unique way of developing their bodies and movement. It's a really interesting idea and I hope that we will be able to use the equipment across parks over the hole country".

Amanda Scott -- Play Facilities Development Officer, Maidstone Borough Council

'When I think of the parks in our area and the reputation some of our teenagers get from using them, it's a real shame. The equipment there is not suited to them they end up being seen to be abusing them when they're not. So when you see them playing on the Freemove equipment and working together cooperatively like this it's absolutely brilliant".

Pete Whitehead -- Vice Principal, Stockport Academy

"Parkour has to be encouraged, not just for the movement and the development it offers young people. It also has to be supported so that people understand it is not an antisocial activity, it's not a niche activity, it's there for everyone to take part in, young and old. It develops people physically and mentally, so it gives people a great alternative to standard forms of exercise and gets kids off the streets and gives them a bit of focus".

Ross Dunn - Play Services Officer, North Lanarkshire Council

"These parks are such a positive influence on everyone around, even people that don't do Parkour have a look and think 'I want to give that a go', and before they know it they are exploring new depths that they haven't been to before. It's exciting, it's fantastic equipment and everyone is having such an amazing time that it's a shame it has to end".

Alex Potts -- Traceur, The Wirral
