World Cup fever to hit Swindon with special screenings of England games at the Old Town Bowl


By Harrison Burridge

As the excitement for the World Cup starts to build it’s time to start thinking of where you’ll be watching England’s games.

Well, no need to look any further as there will be special outdoor screenings of the England games at the Old Town Bowl in Town Gardens.

The venue is a natural bowl located within the gardens and is the perfect setting to soak up the atmosphere as Swindon gets behind England during their 2018 World Cup campaign. It’s a family event, with a fully licensed bar, BBQ and face painting.

The games will be shown on a big LED screen and there will be extra sound installed for the commentary.

It’s a ticketed event with a limited capacity which is likely to sell out quickly so don’t delay in purchasing your tickets. There are family offers as well as cheaper tickets options for adult ‘season tickets’ which covers all three group games.

The group games are England v Tunisia (7pm kick-off) on Monday 18 June; England v Panama (1pm kick-off) on Sunday 24 June; and England v Belgium (7pm kick-off) on Thursday 28 June.

There is no car parking at the venue so people are advised to use public transport or use local car parks that are only a few minutes walk from the venue. The closest car parks are Britannia Place, SN1 3RA or Prospect Place, SN1 3LJ.

Due to licensing restrictions alcohol cannot be brought on the site however there is a fully licensed bar. Flares and pyrotechnics are also prohibited.
