Plenty of food and drink outlets

Open match area where anyone can get involved and just play


Local traders all open for business

St Marks Road has been identified as a wonderfully diverse local street that has tons to offer. The community spirit is fantastic with local traders all supporting each other. The road is hugely diverse with a church, mosque and pub all within about 30 metres. All backgrounds, races and religions are welcome.

The event is the first step in a relationship that will see Gloucestershire Cricket work a lot closer with its Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community in Bristol, everyone is welcome!
