Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

The NEC is hosting a number of different events during the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, between the dates of 26th July - 8th August 2022.

We ask that all guests visiting us between the dates of 28th July – 8th August 2022 allow additional time before their arrival to us. We recommend that guests arrive 60 minutes before their first activity start time.

Across this period, additional security measures on site will increase restrictions as to what our guests are permitted to bring with them to The Bear Grylls Adventure. 

We ask that guests report to the soft ticket check point outside of security screening, letting the team here know that you are visiting The Bear Grylls Adventure. You will be asked to show proof of your booking. All members of your group will be security screened accordingly. Once screened, you can walk down to The Bear Grylls Adventure.
