Make your way to the North Stand reception to be greeted by our friendly tour guides for the free half-hourly tours.

There will be many free and exciting events for all the family taking place at the other 14 venues across Aston including performances and workshops at The Drum, free access to and tours of Aston Hall, Irish music and dancing at the Sacred Heart Club, healthy eating tours at Tesco Aston Lane, a children's treasure hunt and refreshments at Aston Library, the chance to see Kajans' historic Albert Hall and learn about a new Catering College due to open this year.

There will also be tours of Aston's most iconic religious buildings - Aston Parish Church, Birmingham Jame Masjid Mosque, South Aston Church and Sacred Heart and St Margaret Mary Church, refreshments and a free lunch for the first visitors at the Bartons Arms from 12pm and the chance to squirt water from a real fire engine at Aston Fire Station!

Aston Manor Transport Museum will also be running a free bus service on one of their vintage buses to offer a unique view of the area and all of the venues taking part.

So grab your Aston passport at the first venue you visit.

If you manage to get it stamped by all 14 venues on the day and leave it at the last venue you visit, you will be entered in to a prize draw to win free tickets to Aston Hall by Candlelight or Aston Villa's friendly match against Malaga on August 10.
