In previous years, to play against our celebrities our public team were all required to bid for their place in the Public Team squad. Bidding started at £50 per place and the auction process was via our Facebook page.  The auction was open to male and female players, who were at least 16 years of age to play.

Details of the 2018 Public Squad entry criteria will be posted here once confirmed

Last year anyone under 16 or over the age of 65 was admitted to our match free of charge. For everyone else the cost of entry was just £5.


Gates tend to open early for you to snatch an early glimpse of the celebrities, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the fresh food and fully-licensed bar.

All celebrities that are not playing will be on hand to sign autographs … so long as you make a charitable donation!
