Hopefully you can join the players and staff during the late night opening festivities and, if you can, there will be a fantastic prize on offer for eight lucky people!
Yes, there are eight opportunities to win a pair of tickets for a VIP day out in a private box to see the LV= Cup clash when Gloucester take on local rivals Worcester at Kingsholm on 30th January.
