FREE tickets to attend the Festival on the Saturday are available via bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/festivals/festival-of-sport-2019 where you will find details of the exciting schedule. Please note tickets are only available online from the BBC, not ASV, and you will not be able to gain entry to the Festival without a ticket.  

Whilst the Sports Centre (including the Gym) will be not be available, the Aquatics Centre will be running as normal over the weekend. Please be aware our car parks will be very busy and there will be no access through the link bridge between the 2 centres.
