YOUR GUIDE TO THE REC - BRISTOL BEARS

28 February 2020

Here's what's on at the Rec this Sunday as the Blue, Black and White welcome Bristol Bears for Round 12 of the Gallagher Premiership.

PRE-MATCH

We are holding a kid’s workshop in the Swift Half at 13:30 until kick-off. Join us to write a message to your favourite player, complete our activity sheet and grab a free flag! 

The Shadow Monkeys return to the Rec to play live music in the Swift Half before and after the game! Join them for some singalong classics to keep the party going.

Keep your eyes peeled for our furry Mascot, Maximus, who will be available for dance offs, selfies and cuddles!

Thatchers Cider are here at the Rec as part of our Swift Half cider festival. Head over to their Cider Hatch Land Rover bar to try some of their delicious Somerset ciders including Thatchers Gold, Haze, Rosé and their traditional Stan’s range Trad. & Big Apple.

CASH-FREE

Having been phased in at the end of the 2018/19 season, all Bath Rugby bars and concession stands on the outfield will no longer accept cash payments. 

The move to cash-free is designed to speed up transactions and reduce queuing times to ensure that supporters have less time away from the game.

The Rec will be able to process all major contactless debit and credit card, with chip and pin applying to all purchases over £30. Bars and food outlets will also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay. Make your experience even quicker by downloading the Tap and Go app available to download on Apple and Android. Search “Tap and Go at Bath Rugby”.

FOOD

There are a number of food vendors available at the Rec, including Mac & Cheese, The Best Brownie Company and Fish and Chips. There is a new vegan stand ‘Have a pinch,’ so make sure you take advantage of the many options available to you ahead of kick-off.

HALF-TIME

Join in the half-time fun with the Thatchers apple relay. We’ll need two teams of two to roll the giant apples from one side of the pitch to the other. The fastest team will win a case of Thatchers Gold!

REUSABLE BOTTLES

Bath Rugby is working towards being single use plastic free on a matchday. As part of this commitment, bars and concessions will no longer be selling plastic bottles. There are refill stations located in the four corners of the ground to refill your bottes at the Rec. Bath Rugby branded reusable bottles will be sold at every bar at the Rec for £5.
