Thursday 30th November 2017 marked the launch of an exciting new partnership with KidZania, an indoor city, run by kids!
Based in Westfield shopping centre in Hammersmith, children aged between 4-14 years old can experience real life activities, via role play whilst having fun! KidZania offers over 60 activities in a fun and secure space, ranging from a Doctor to a Singer, Pilot to a Chocolatier and now includes a Cricketer in the Middlesex Cricket Stadium, take a look https://kidzania.co.uk/
The Middlesex Cricket Stadium at KidZania provides a fantastic environment to give young people a positive experience of cricket, the space includes iconic images from Lords Cricket Ground, thanks to the support of our partners at the MCC, including the world-famous pavilion!
Two key features of the cricket offer at KidZania are; raising children’s activity levels whilst in the stadium and inspiring them to pick up a bat and ball when they leave the city. As a result, we will be offering all Middlesex schools that visit the city and the stadium the opportunity to receive coaching back in their school’s environment, to ensure we build on a positive introduction to the game and cement cricket as a long-term activity option for their school.
Individuals will also be offered special discounts and opportunities to take advantage of holiday coaching programmes across our club network and to visit the Home of Cricket and see the pavilion with their families in real life!
Middlesex would encourage members and fans with young family members and friends to visit KidZania and experience the city for yourself!
We would welcome your feedback on your experience and on the cricket activities experienced in the stadium, please send feedback to Katie Berry - Director of Participation & Safeguarding at [email protected]
