This Saturday, we welcome London Irish to the Rec for a match for an Aviva Premiership clash that's been dubbed the 'Battle of the Pace men', kick-off 15.00.
There are still some tickets available but you'll need to move quickly to avoid disappointment!
Gates will open at 13.00 so why not make your first stop the marquee located in the Supporters' Village and take part in our consultation on the developments at the Rec. No images of what an arena may look like are available at this stage, but there is a site plan showing the overall size of the proposed development.
Feedback from this exhibition will help to inform the design process. Detailed plans and designs will be shown at a second exhibition later in 2013, before any application is submitted, so please make your views heard.
You can soak up the pre-match atmosphere in the Swift Half, with Happy Hour running between 13.00 and 14.00. You can enjoy pints of Wadworth 6X and Thatcher's cider for just £2.50 per pint! There will also be some familiar faces behind the bar, as Nick Abendanon and Ryan Caldwell swap rugby for pulling pints from 14.15 to 14.45!
Don't forget to pick up one of our new Bath Rugby pint glasses too. Available to buy from any of the bars for just £1!
For our younger supporters, we are once again offering the chance to be part of the matchday guard of honour.
If you're aged 6-15 and are coming to the game on Saturday, simply visit the Challenge Area on the outfield before 14.15 and sign-up to the Junior Membership Club. The first 40 people to do so will get to take to the pitch along with their heroes as they run out in front of packed Rec.
And whilst you're over there, why not have a go at this week's Children's Challenge? This week's challenge is 'keepy uppies' – can you match Matt Banahan? The target to beat is 19, so get practicing before Saturday!
At half-time, the Jaffa zorbs return to the pitch and after Danny Grewcock's triumphant victory win over Austin Healey at the Leicester game, Saturday will be the first time Bath supporters can take up the challenge.
After the game, make sure you join us in the Swift Half where you can enjoy some live Irish Ceilidh music from The Ship Band whilst discussing all the goings-on of the day with fellow supporters and members of the Bath Rugby squad. The Bath half-backs will be joining you for a pint and debrief, so have your questions ready!
It's not too late to book your tickets for the game so phone the ticket hotline on 0844 448 1865 or call into the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge.
