The sun is shining and what’s more, it’s anticipated to last for the weekend. Say what? Summer may finally be here.
If you’re a keen rugby supporter like me, this weekend holds an extra treat. The Athletic Park and Old Dear Park in Richmond will be home to the awesome Rugby Rocks festival that’s now in its third year.
Over 1000 players will compete in tournaments including Rugby Sevens, Touch Rugby, Vets Rugby, Colts and netball too throughout Saturday and Sunday.
As if spectating in the sun with great booze and food wasn’t enough, they’ve got an awesome line up also taking to the stage. Acts include Benji Boko, Goldierocks and Olly Barkley, whilst the headline act is no other than Zane Lowe. It’s definitely an event not to be missed.
Tickets can be purchased from Ticketmaster and cost £20 on Saturday and £10 on Sunday.
I’ll definitely be heading down there. Of course this is simply for the good sport and world-class DJs, nothing to do with the hot boys running around in shorts. Ahem.
Just a word of warning, don’t forget the sunscreen kids, it’s gonna be a scorcher.
