Looking for something to do with the kids during the summer school holidays? Birmingham Bears will host seven Twenty20 match days at Edgbaston Stadium this July and August, and the great news is that under 16s go FREE, so you can share the excitement of the game with your kids without breaking the bank!
Bears match days are a truly amazing experience for the whole family. The fun starts before the game even begins with heaps of free family activities including inflatables, face painting, live music, giveaways and more. Then on-the-field, fans of all ages will be captivated by the fast-paced action of Twenty20 cricket – the game’s shortest and most exciting format – in a safe, friendly and fun environment.
That’s not all! There will be music playing to dance along to, plus you’ll have the chance to meet the team mascots Hugh Bear and Carmen Bear. You can even meet the players after the game!
