A 'Family Day' is being held at the Arena on Saturday to Co-inside with the Crawley game. A number of things are planned to attract families along to the game, and to make sure they have a good afternoon. This includes:

A Special family ticket costing £25 (2 adults + 2 children)
Childs fairground ride
Fire Engine
Face painter
Mini Disco in Bar 66 before game

The club will also have:

Candyfloss/hotdogs for kids
Meet 'Feethams the Panda' (should be good cos I havent met the little creature yet!)
Free to enter Colouring-in competition in Bar 66 before game
Free to enter Fancy dress competition  (Beatroute66 is in with a chance here!)


Those children participating in competitions to be invited pitchside at half time, where winners will be chosen

The Football club and Supporters Club want familes and children to enjoy their afternoon at the Arena, and invite them to join in the fun in and around Bar 66 from 1pm onwards !!

I'm sure I asked the other week when the club would next be doing a family fun day.

Good idea to keep the attendance momentum going :thumbup:

agreed a good idea but they should have continued the momentum by advertising it on Tuesday.
The price is worth it for 2 adults alone whether they bring kids or not!!

I see paedophiles are getting more creative with their stories. Whatever happened to a good old bag of sweets and a rag soaked with chloroform?

How does it work exactly?

I doubt you would have to prove you're a family so could you just pay the £25 and get handed 2 adult and 2 kids tickets? Share them with a mate and his kid and you're laughing.

looks like my mate is now going for the first time this season purely because its fun day.

Keeping the kids entertained is a big one for him so this is another big tick for the club as far as im concerned.

They do this at the race courses with great success. The club could do one a month.... we've got the facilities.

Massive note of caution though. The racecourses take out full page spreads in the free paper to advertise these events. That is how to get the punters in, we really need to get these things advertised. He needs a budget for it.

IMO He should say no to any January signing requests (surely the squad is proving to be coping and large enough) and spend that money on advertising the club and its offering. If we stay in the FA Cup it will get us about, but lets get bums back on seats.

I doubt you have to actually e a family to take advantage (and if you did, how closely related, how would you prove it?). I take my boys along regularly and my brother sometimes makes the trip up too, so we normally get a family ticket anyway.
Who is to say you actually need to have kids to get the ticket anyway? We wouldn't normally all four of us go to the ticket office together (someone has to get a round in!) so what's stopping people buying a family ticket, even if they only intend to us the 2 adult tickets?
