If the explosive on-field action isn’t enough, we are also laying on an array of other family-friendly entertainment.

Junior Wristbands

Spectators visiting with children can take advantage of our free wristband system. Simply collect your band from one of our gate Stewards or volunteers, or alternatively ask a member of staff on the Radcliffe Road Reception or Ticket Office.

On the reverse of your wristband, where details are well hidden from view, simply complete the following information:

•    Parent/guardian’s name
•    Contact phone number whilst in the ground
•    Your stand and seat location
•    Date

These details will then help a steward reunite you with your child should you become separated or should he or she get lost around the ground.

It is, we hasten to add, very rare for parents and children to become separated at Trent Bridge, but it of course makes very good sense to have a procedure in place.

Food and Drink

From 10.30am, you will be able to purchase food and drink from the Parr Bar, Scoreboard Bar, Hound Road bar and the Cricketer’s Suite, while members’ facilities will also be available in the Pavilion.
