What's on at the Summer Gathering this weekend
There’s just a month to go until the new season kicks off but if you can’t wait until then for your next dose of all things Saracens head down to Allianz Park this Saturday for the Summer Gathering!
When is the Summer Gathering?
The annual summer gathering takes place on Saturday 5th August this year, with the stadium open to fans from 12H00 until 16H00.
What’s on at the Summer Gathering?
There’s plenty to keep all the family entertained at the gathering with activities taking place all around the stadium.
From 12H45 until 13H30 budding rugby players can get some tips from their heroes with coaching sessions featuring Saracens players on the pitch. There will be groups for players aged 6-8, 9-11 and 12-14. Spaces for this activity are unfortunately all full.
We’ll also have Metro mini golf on the pitch, inflatable games, a climbing wall and sack racing taking place to keep active kids entertained!
If you’re looking to see behind the scenes at Sarries join us on one of our stadium tours which will be running through the afternoon from the East Stand reception at 12H15, 13H45 and 14H45. Fans can also get an insight into how the squad prepare before they take the pitch with changing room tours which will run at 12H30, 13H00 and 13H30 or check out the Players Lounge alongside Sarries backroom staff.
Want to hear from your favourite Saracens? We’ll be interviewing Sarries new and old on the piazza. Head down at 12H30 to hear from Ian Peel, Calum Clark and Christopher Tolofua or join us at 13H30 for Schalk Brits, Alex Goode and Alex Sanderson.
What’s more the Champions Cup trophy will be on display and we’ll have a number of players in the Sarries shop so you can grab a selfie or autograph while you check out our brand new kit!
What are the food and drink options at the Gathering?
In true summer style we’ll be firing up the barbeque on the throws field for the afternoon and welcoming an ice cream van to the piazza! Our friends from Wolfpack lager will also be joining us, pulling up their Landrover bar for the day.
What does the Summer Gathering cost?
The Summer Gathering is free and open to everyone. Parking for the event is priced at £5 and is available online in advance here or on the gate.
