See out 2021 in style with our post-match party!

As we prepare for our final home game of 2021, we are determined to see out the year in style at 1st Cloud Arena.

We’ll be spreading Christmas joy before, during and after the match against Witton Albion, with entertainment, extended Happy Hours and plenty of competitions.

The turnstiles will open at 12.30pm, which will also prompt the start of our first ‘Happy 90 minutes’, which will of course last until 2pm. The prices of drinks during our ‘Happy 90 minutes’ are detailed at the bottom of this article.

The game will begin as usual at 3pm and those who truly get into the festive spirit could be rewarded for their efforts. There will be spot prizes handed out for the best fancy dress costumes and Christmas jumpers worn on the day.

All of the bars at the ground will remain open after the game. They will be open to all, regardless of whether you were at the match. Head to the marquee for the start of the post-match entertainment, with Chris Johns – Gerry from Purely Belter – to sing between 5pm and 7pm.

The second ‘Happy 90 minutes’ drinks promotion will last from 5.30pm to 7pm, and there will also be entertainment in the Shipley Lounge between 6.30pm and 9.30pm, with the brilliant David Stoker to perform.

Back in the marquee, meanwhile, there will be a break in entertainment between 7pm and 7.30pm while we open our hot buffet, which will be free to tuck into.

At 7.30pm, a DJ will take centre stage and there will also be karaoke, while a raffle will be drawn between 9.30pm and 10pm.

A bottle will be handed out at the end of the night to the wearer of the best fancy dress.

We’re certainly not planning to see out the year quietly. Please join us to make it a day and night to remember!

  • Birra Moretti pint £3
  • Foster’s pint £2.50
  • Strongbow pint £2.50
