No, there is no match scheduled for the weekend of 3-4 November.

How accessible is the event?

The event takes place on ground level – there are no steps into the building. There is some uneven ground as you approach the building but this should not be an issue for wheelchairs or prams. The event can get busy and crowded so may not be suitable for all. Please get in touch if you need more advice on accessibility.

Can I buy a ticket on the door?

Yes, you can pay with cash or card on the door as long as we don’t sell out of tickets. Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates on ticket availability.
