Not got tickets for the Commonwealth Games? We've got you covered.
For residents that do not have a ticket and still want to be part of the action during Games time, there will be festival sites in Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa where they can experience all the action.
From Thursday 28 July to Monday 8 August, there will be two festival sites in Warwick District, one in Pump Room Gardens in Royal Leamington Spa, operated by Warwick District Council, and another in Market Square in Warwick, operated by Warwickshire County Council; both will have big screens, open from 10am – 10pm and are free to attend, to celebrate the region’s hosting of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The festival site at the Pump Room Gardens will have several activities for families as well as an opportunity to try bowls at one of the pop-up bowls greens provided by Bowls England, where you can challenge your family and friends and get a feel for the sport. There will also be a great choice of food and drink stalls available at the site.
At the Leamington Spa site on Saturday and Sunday over both weekends of the Games, there will be activities for children between 10am – 12pm, 2pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm, including medal making, creating commonwealth countries’ flags and bunting and much more.
The festival site in Market Square, Warwick, will be open daily from 10am to 10pm, with refreshments available from local businesses. The Market Square is closed to vehicles but open to the public, throughout the week there will be various activities across the 13 day period, from 11am until 5pm.
