The Hawthorns Fanzone opens from midday
IT’s a packed Hawthorns for the Bournemouth clash to start the Christmas festive season – so why not countdown to kick-off in the Albion Fanzone?
We’ve got another fantastic pre-match line-up of fun and entertainment in our Fanzone, sponsored by Freebets, and of course we have persuaded Santa to pop in and lend a hand.
You will find him in his special grotto with gifts for the first 500 youngsters to come and tell him what they want for Christmas.
We are not at liberty to reveal what Father Christmas will be handing out...but our thanks to Cadbury’s for supplying the goodies!
And there’s loads more. We will again be showing the live game on our giant screen – the Championship top-of-the-table clash between Brighton and Middlesbrough – and we welcome back the fantastic Second City Soul band to provide live music.
They will be getting into the spirit of things by adding Christmas tunes to their repertoire and, with such a mild weather forecast at the moment, we’ve even got a snow machine lined up to help create the right atmosphere.
How about a visit by the one and only 'SuperBob', who is popping by for a chat on stage as the countdown to kick-off continues, while for fun there will be a bucking reindeer as this week’s challenge.
The heated marquee will again be installed should the weather turn inclement, while all the usual licensed food and drink facilities will be open.
Match tickets are required for entry and the new security protocols will be in place – your co-operation will be appreciated.
