The launch will take place at the new facility at Grimsby’s Duke of York Gardens between 10am and 2pm.
During the event there will practical demonstrations from some of the country's leading Parkour practitioners as well as local practitioners, and plenty of opportunity for people to have a go on the equipment and learn some of the basics to Parkour.
Alongside this there will a range of other activities to get involved with including the mobile climbing wall unit.

For nearly two years the council's Specialist Health Promotion Service and local Parkour group, Team Reality, have worked with the community, councillors and other professionals to develop the project and gain funding from WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd) and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside Police, totalling £57,000, and build the facility at Duke of York Gardens, the first of its kind within 80 miles of North East Lincolnshire.
Councillor Ros James, portfolio holder for housing and wellbeing said:
"Local consultation among communities, local organisations and practitioners saw an over whelming response for the need of such a facility. We are delighted that the young people who practice parkour now have a purpose built facility, and look forward to it going from strength to strength.”
