Pokemon – come home: event

All over the city this Saturday (Sept 10th) we and other cultural venues will be taking part in a special event where we will be creating extra Pokemon  ‘lures’ at our sites;  more creatures will be at our Pokéstops . The event has been organised by the StillWalking festival people, who encourage exploring all aspects of our city , on foot. The challenge for this event will be to collect as many new creatures as they can.

For those who can show their onscreen Pokémon avatar, the entrance to the Garden on Saturday is £2 (under 16s £1 – must be accompanied by an adult)….

Play PokemonGo in Castle Bromwich?

Are you an aspiring Pokemon Trainer? Did you know that in and around the grounds of Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens we have multiple Pokestops and a Gym for you to visit? Because we have! Even better, with free Wi-Fi and power sockets in our cafe you can hunt capture and train your Pokemon in comfort while grabbing a snack to keep you going. You could even come and  enjoy the gardens too, for a small fee. We’ve even heard a rumour there’s a Polywag or two about, so what are you waiting for?
