With the lifting of restrictions and the return of capacity crowds, Vitality Blast match days will see the return of free activities and giveaways when the T20 competition gets underway on Thursday 26 May.

As well as the fast-paced action on the field and some of the game’s biggest names including Carlos Brathwaite and Paul Stirling in action, fans at Bears’ matches this May and June can expect plenty going on off it.

As always, we’ll have the best award-winning food and drink, with a wide variety available including halal, vegetarian, vegan and more, plus activities including the return of our popular Kids Zone, which has giant inflatables and family fun.

Before every game we will have live music in the Exhibition Hall, while on our Friday night games we will have live music after play – so why not stay a little longer and make a night of it.

At our Sunday matches, we will have face painting, balloon modellers and lots of family activities. And at all matches we will have free giveaways including our new Bears headbands, which fans will need to wear to enter our Selco Builders Warehouse Fan of the Match competition.

We will also have signature sheets, which you can get all the players to sign after the conclusion of each match. This will take place in front of the South Stand next to the home dressing room.

Tickets are available from only £19, when purchased in advance of the day of the game – while tickets are only £15 for the opening game on 26 May against Northants Steelbacks.

12 to 15-year-olds are £5 and under 12s go FREE to all games this summer. Fans can make further saving by purchasing tickets as a group of six or more.
