For Families

A Birmingham Bears matchday is a fun, entertaining and affordable day out this summer school holiday, with Edgbaston hosting seven home games during July and August in 2019 – and three on Sunday afternoons.

Under 16s go FREE to all Twenty20 matchdays this summer. Please note all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult over 18. 

A Bears matchday is so much more than just cricket, with free family entertainment at all games, our popular Kids Zone – featuring inflatables, interactive games and face painting – live music pre-match and free giveaways (the perfect souvenir to take home).


Kids Zone – FREE pre-match fun

Our Kids Zone is full of inflatable fun, with activities for all ages! This will be open two hours before the start of play and close just before play begins. It’s the perfect way to start your day with us.

The Kids Zone, located in the outdoor nets opposite the main entrance, is completely free with your matchday ticket and will include a host of fun activities including inflatables and interactive games.



Make sure you grab our free giveaways, which will be available from our friendly volunteers located by the main entrance and Exhibition Hall. Giveaways include our popular Hairy Headbands, signature sheets (get it signed by the players after play) and t-shirts that will be handed out during play.

We advise fans to get there early, we have a limited amount of giveaways and once they’re gone – they’re gone!
