Fun for all of the Family!
Leicestershire CCC is excited to announce that we are once again running our ever popular Family Fun Day on Sunday, May 27, during our huge Royal London One-Day Cup fixture against Yorkshire Vikings.
The game starts at 11:00am, with gates opening at 9:30am - and all tickets for this fixture are just £1!
There will be entertainment for the whole family with a wide range of fun activities between 11am and 4pm. The Foxes Den, ran by our professional coaching staff, will be open for kids to try out and learn new cricket skills. Visit the bouncy castle near the Foxes Den and face painting in the Red Monkey Play area and make sure you take part in our ‘Find a Fox’ treasure hunt!
Some of our first team players will be on hand to sign autographs in the Foxes Den at 12:30pm, joined by our mascot, Charlie Fox. You can purchase one of our signature bats from any one of our retail outlets, the perfect way to get those signatures.
During the 45-minute innings interval, weather permitting, you’ll be able to make your way on to our hallowed turf, with a bat and ball and have a bit of cricketing fun! Look out for Charlie Fox who will also be on the pitch meeting his fans.
Food & Drink
The Meet Café & Bar will be serving hot and cold food throughout the day including vegetarian options. There will also be a Pizzeria Stall and Prosecco bar on hand too, as well as the ice-cream shop located on the ground floor of The Meet open throughout the afternoon.
For a more formal meal option, our popular Charles Palmer Restaurant will be will be serving lunch throughout the afternoon. The menu options change daily and are cooked using a majority of freshly procured local ingredients.
Adults can dine for £17.95 for a delicious three-course lunch with coffee and red fox mints (two course option for £15.95) and it is strongly advised to book in advance as our Restaurant fills quickly. Please note that child portions are available at £9 for three courses and £8 for two courses.
