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


“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.”

The Telegraph

“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.”

Emerald Street

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

The Guardian

“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.”

TimeOut Magazine

“Lawn bowls with a difference!”
