Edgbaston expecting record Community Fun Day crowd
There’s just three days to go until the Edgbaston Foundation hosts its biggest Community Fun Day ever on Saturday 4 May.
Priced at just £2 for adults and free for under 16s, the 2019 Community Fun Day combines Warwickshire’s Royal London One-Day Cup game, at Edgbaston Stadium, with a bumper package of off-field activities and initiatives that support an active, healthy lifestyle.
Hover Archery, Cricket Strike and Laser Tag are just a few of the free activities that children can get involved in on Community Fun Day which, in honour of the iconic Star Wars May 4 day, has a Super Heroes theme with fans being encouraged to dress up as their favourite character.
Returning for 2019, health awareness charity Boundaries for Life will be providing free health checks conducted by health professionals to supporters in the Exhibition Hall with a focus on determining a ‘healthy heart’ age. The NSPCC will also be holding workshops for parents on children staying safe online.
Ravi Masih, Head of Community Engagement at Warwickshire CCC, said: “Community Fun Day is about opening the gates at Edgbaston to bring in new people including those who don’t watch cricket regularly, so they can experience everything that we have to offer on and off the field.
“This will be the first time that we have been able to combine our extensive programme of Fun Day activities with a Royal London One-Day Cup match and, with the game falling on the Saturday of the Bank Holiday weekend, we’re looking forward to welcoming a good crowd.”
