Twenty20 cricket returns to Lord’s next week – and here’s your chance to enjoy a FREE afternoon of family entertainment at the world’s most famous ground.

Middlesex Panthers are holding a Family Fun Day to mark their first home match in this season’s Friends Life t20 tournament on Sunday June 30, when they take on Sussex Sharks.

As well as enjoying the game itself – which starts at 2.30pm – there’s also plenty to grab the attention of adults and youngsters alike before the cricket gets under way.

The Lord’s gates will be opened at 12.30pm for a family fête on the Nursery Ground, including fairground stalls, a picnic area, face painting, coconut shy, tin-can alley, candy floss, balloon modelling and a speed bowling challenge.

We’ve teamed up with Middlesex CCC to offer three lucky readers a family prize – tickets for two adults and two kids to gain free entry to both the fête and the match.

To stand a chance of winning one of the family prizes, all you need to do is answer this simple question:

What colour shirts do the Middlesex Panthers players wear in the Friends Life t20?

Email your answer, along with your name, address and contact telephone number to no later than 10am on Wednesday June 26.

If you’re not lucky enough to win one of the prizes on this occasion, don’t worry – tickets for the Family Fun Day are still available at £20 for adults and £5 for under-16s, when purchased in advance.

The Panthers also have t20 matches coming up at Lord’s against Essex Eagles on Thursday July 4 (6.10pm) and Surrey on Thursday July 25 (6.15pm), both under floodlights with live music and entertainment.
