Floodlit encounters at the Rec

1 September 2016

An evening match is always a great experience at the Rec with all of the exciting action on the pitch set against the stunning backdrop of the City of Bath at night time.

With the likes of Bristol Rugby and Leicester Tigers visiting in the evening this year, why not make a night of it with hospitality at one of our evening fixtures.

  • Friday 7th October – Bath Rugby v Sale Sharks - Aviva Premiership
  • Friday 4th November – Bath Rugby v Leicester Tigers – Anglo Welsh Cup
  • Thursday 20th October – Bath Rugby v Bristol Rugby – European Rugby Challenge Cup
  • Friday 18th November – Bath Rugby v Bristol Rugby – Aviva Premiership
  • Thursday 15th December – Bath Rugby v Cardiff Blues – European Rugby Challenge Cup

We are expecting our Aviva Premiership match against Premiership newcomers and local rivals, Bristol Rugby, to be one of our best-selling games of the year, and we are offering a special hospitality package at the Pavilion, located just behind the Rec.

If a tantalising local derby game isn’t enough reason to book hospitality, we also have Bath Rugby Legend, Gareth Chilcott, lined up to entertain you with his post-dinner tales and laughter after the game!

This package will include:


  • Complimentary bar serving beers, wines and soft drinks for one hour
  • Two course dinner
  • Q&A with a member of the Bath Rugby Squad
  • Open or covered match tickets
  • Match programmes

This package can either be booked for exclusive tables of ten – twelve guests or by smaller parties to sit on shared tables.  The cost is £150 + vat pp with open match tickets and £165 + vat pp with covered match tickets.

A similar package will be available for Cardiff Blues on Thursday 15th December meaning the perfect opportunity for a Christmas party!
