Brentford fans gathered ahead of the West Ham United game last weekend to take part in some family fun at the London Museum of Water and Steam. Around 400 supporters and local Brentford residents gathered in the family fun zone which was set up on the morning of the game outside the Museum.
Football coaches from Brentford FC Community Sports Trust put the younger Bees fans through their paces on the mini pitch and at the speed cage while the face painter, balloon modeller and football freestyler kept everyone entertained.
Sally Stephens, Fan and Community Relations Director, was encouraged to see so many fans in attendance. “It has been so long since we have been able to do an in-person fanzone so it was great to see lots of familiar faces down before the West Ham game," she said. “With the Farewell Griffin Park exhibition being hosted inside the London Museum of Water and Steam, it was an ideal venue for us to set up outside.
“We recently finished top of the Premier League’s matchday experience survey and we hope that events like these ones will help us to continue to create a family-friendly and welcoming environment for our fans.”
We thank our friends at the London Museum of Water and Steam for all their support on the day. The Museum also continues to host ‘Farewell Griffin Park – The Fans Story Exhibition’. You can enter the exhibition for just £5 if you show your Season Ticket, Match Ticket or membership of Bees United. The exhibition is open until Sunday 8 May – it’s well worth a visit.
