Subbuteo Skill Sessions Calendar

10 August 2019 - 11 August 2019
1pm - 3pm


Before the days of FIFA, before the days of Pro Evo, ISS or Actua Soccer...before Super Soccer, Kick-Off, SWOS or even Pele's Soccer on the Atari 2600, there was only one way to play as your heroes at home: the mighty Subbuteo.

Ring in the new Premier League season with some old-school flick-to-kick action. Can you give Steve Bruce the dream start to his Newcastle United tenure with a win over Arsenal, or will you spoil his afternoon by taking charge of the Gunners? Clinch a first win of the season for Manchester United at the (Subbuteo) Theatre of Dreams, or fire Frank Lampard's Chelsea to victory on enemy territory?

Join us in the Pitch Gallery between 1pm and 3pm as we bring a nostalgic vibe to the weekend's action. Drop in and challenge our volunteers, your friends or your family (be warned: dads are likely to excel at this!), learn the rules and relive the glory years of football tabletop gaming.
