On Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21, 2024, join us for an extra special event as - for the first time ever - you can zipwire across The Hawthorns.

Select a morning or afternoon slot on either day and you’ll be welcomed into the stadium at the Smethwick Corner Entrance and escorted through to the home dressing room for a photo with Baggie Bird. You’ll then make your way to the tunnel to be harnessed in before walking to the top of the Birmingham Road Stand.

From there you will zipwire across the stadium to the Millennium Corner, and then receive your exclusive participant’s medal.

There are limited spaces available at £40 each, and you can add a limited edition T-Shirt to your booking for £15. On the day you will also be able to purchase a commemorative photograph of your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
