Take Over The Town 2

14 February 2015

The first of our great businesses showing their love to YOU!

It was a big success last season and Take Over The Town is back up and running for 2015, with a romantic twist!

Following the fun and games we had with our campaign in April of 2014, we're pleased to be in the midst of Take Over The Town 2 – 'Fall in love with the U's'!

As per last year, there have been and will be a range of events between February 14th and February 21st, leading up to the U's big home game with promotion chasing Bristol City on Saturday.

Eddie the Eagle was out on Friday delivering Valentine’s flowers to romantic U’s supporters and their partners, and Eddie is also still hoping that one fan might be brave enough to propose to their boyfriend or girlfriend at the Bristol match. If you’re brave enough to do so, drop us a line on
