By entering the cricket ground, the ticketholder agrees to abide by all of the Ticket Terms & Conditions and Ground Regulations of Gloucestershire CCC, which amongst other matters prohibits the importation of knives, cans and admittance with alcohol may be restricted. A copy of the ground regulations can be obtained on request. In the event of an emergency it may be necessary to evacuate the ground. Please follow directions of the steward in your area. Please do not leave your bag unattended in any part of the ground. Should you require any help or assistance during your visit please contact the nearest steward. The use of threatening behaviour, foul or abusive language, indecent or racist chanting or comment will not be tolerated.

The ticket will admit to the non-members’ area only. To gain entrance to the members’ enclosure club members must show membership cards. At GCCC’s  discretion visiting members may be allowed into the members’ enclosure.

Please be aware that under ground regulations GCCC has, for reason of spectator safety and comfort, reserved the right to impose a limitation on the amount of alcohol that can be brought into the ground on match days.

For International fixtures the importation of alcohol is completely banned by ICC Regulation. The ban will also extend to our Vitality Blast, Royal London Cup and any other One Day matches, due to high attendances.

Smoking is not permitted in the Stands for International Matches and GCCC reserves the right to ban smoking in all seated areas during high attendance matches.
