What is Festibowl?

We set up with a mission to lower the average age of lawn bowls from over 70 to under 40 and after three years we’ve managed to get to an average of 69 so we’re pretty happy about that.

Smack bang in the heart of the City of London, Festibowl is the oldest bowling green in the UK and with our impeccable bowls heritage we’re planning on injecting a lot of fun, food and frivolity to this quintessential British game.

Simplifying but still staying true to the game – we aim to do what 20:20 did for cricket – a faster, more intense and a lot more fun version of the game. We’ve still good wood, rinks and jacks – lingo is very important.

Our all singing and literally all dancing corporate and party packages are perfect for a summer jaunt and our team will be happy to answer any questions you have.

We look forward to seeing you on the grass.

“Lawn bowls might not usually scream “festival atmosphere”, but Festibowl is changing that perception.”

The Telegraph

“Lawn bowls may seem as Rock’n’Roll as Coldplay and quinoa – but the public’s perception of this emblematic British game may soon change.”

Emerald Street

“Sex, drugs, rock and…lawn bowls… Festibowl is putting the ‘cool’ in ’sport for old men’ for this year’s lawn bowling festival at Finsbury Square. Drinks, DJs, street food, and a faster form of the traditional game makes this an offbeat sporting competition you can’t miss.”

The Guardian

“Leave your white trousers (and shoes) at home – this genteel English sport is getting a laid-back makeover.”

TimeOut Magazine

“Shuffleboard is trendy in the US, but we’ve got our own old-people sport to update. Festibowl takes over Finsbury Square this week with DJs, food, cocktails and – yep – lawn bowls.”
