What's On In The Family Zone This Friday?

15 April 2019

Open from 1.30pm and based in the Investment Room East Stand Upper, the Family Zone is the best place for young children to sit and experience the match.

The Family Zone is a regular host to a number of exclusive and child friendly activities for the entire family to get involved with throughout the season. There is also a unique catering menu, featuring special options created specifically for children. All activities will be run pre-match, and once the action is underway, they will be carefully stored until the next home fixture.

Take a look at what we've got in store for you on Friday:

1. Dinosaur Experience

It's certainly something different!

Get close and personal with spectacular specimens of genuine fossils and bones! Highlights include an Allosaur skull, a dinosaur egg and a complete Triceratops leg bone!

The Dinostar team will also be on hand to teach young supporters about dinosaur excavation and the difficulties involved in interpreting finds.

2. Easter Egg Hunt

When you arrive at Oakwell, head in to the Reds Superstore and pick up a free worksheet!

Clues will be hidden around the North Stand astro-turf and it will be your job to find them.

Once you've completed the worksheet, hand it in to a member of staff (present on the astro-turf), who will then reward you with an Easter treat!

Please note, you are only allowed to enter once and once all the eggs have been claimed, they're gone!

3. Giveaways

Across the course of the 2018/19 season, a number of items will be given away in the Family Zone. This week, Dani Pinillos has signed a number of pictures and left them for junior supporters to collect on Friday.

4. Experience Upgrade

At each home Sky Bet League One fixture, a number of selected supporters have received an ‘Experience Upgrade’. This has seen young fans become a member of the matchday squad, assist the with the referee's pre-match duties and even accompany a player out on to the pitch!

However, this week it's our annual 'Junior Takeover Day'. This sees young supporters take the role of official Club officials! All the postitions have been filled.

5. Fun & Games

Love playing pool? Reckon you can beat your family at Connect4? The Family Zone will have a number of other activities for children to engage with. This will range from a colouring station, through to table football and Connect4.
