Activities for the whole family pre-Swansea City

- See the Snow Lion at the PPG Canalside Fanzone
- Grab some lunch before heading to the John Smith’s Stadium
- GAME Den and Match Attax station available for Young Terriers

A magical creature, the Snow Lion, never before seen in Huddersfield, will be making an appearance at the PPG Canalside Fanzone, which is sponsored by Perrys Vauxhall, on Saturday 10 March 2018.

Families will be able to get a rare sighting of the Snow Lion, as it joins the Fanzone as part of a Huddersfield Literature Festival (HLF2018) event in partnership with Huddersfield Town (HTAFC).

Accompanied by the majestic Red Queen and her servant, the Snow Lion is a gentle giant, created by puppetry and animatronics, guaranteed to captivate children and adults alike.

There will be two Snow Lion walkabouts at the Club’s Fanzone, the first will take place between 12.30pm and 1pm, with the second from 1.45pm - 2.15pm, both at the PPG Canalside.

Children will be able to have their photograph taken with the enchanted creature and the Children’s Art School will be on hand to offer free Snow Lion mask-making activities.

The Festival will also be giving away 30 copies of the children's book The Snow Lion by Jim Helmore and Richard Jones to the first to arrive on the day.

Not only this, but Young Terriers will also be able to start off their match day with a game of FIFA 18 in the GAME Den! You could test your friends or fellow Town fans and take control of the likes of Aaron Mooy or Rajiv van La Parra.

Is your child collecting Match Attax cards? Well, they could bring them along and see if they can complete the set, by visiting our Match Attax Station located in the heated HV Marquee.

Free face painting and balloon modelling is also available for supporters, so you can look the part ahead of the Swansea City match!

Boothy’s Beer & Banter is also taking place at the Fanzone. His guest is former Manchester City and West Brom midfielder Gary Owen and it’ll take place from 12.30pm exclusively in the Radcliffe Suite, so make sure you get your seat early!
