Arsenal are holding a free football festival for youngsters in St Albans this month.

Coaches from the Gunners’ soccer school will be running free sessions for children aged between four and 16, teaching participants how to “play the Arsenal way”.

The festival is being held from 9.30am and 2pm on Thursday, April 10, at Marlborough Science Academy.

The day includes an “Arsenal on the road” trailer, which will be stationed at the festival, offering fans a behind-the-scenes look at what life is like for the club’s star names through a virtual tour of Emirates Stadium and the Gunners’ training ground in London Colney.

A spokesman for the club said that parents are welcome to take part in a special shooting challenge, and a café area will also be available.
