A few ideas spring to mind when contemplating the best place to watch the Rugby World Cup. One of the 13 stadia (if you’re lucky enough to have tickets); one of the 15 official Fanzones; pub (with mates and an ice-cold pint in hand); or the comfort of your living room.
Rugby on the Green is offering rugby fans an alternative this autumn, bringing an exclusive music festival with a rugby twist to SW6 with resident Mahiki DJs, open-air films and live screenings to help celebrate the arrival of the rugby’s most anticipated event.
Coinciding with two of England’s Pool fixtures and the knock-out stage fixtures, Rugby on The Green will provide a premium experience for guests to enjoy a day full of exciting festivities and live entertainment while supporting the home nation’s progress through the tournament’s crucial pool matches and beyond.
Founder Robert Barry said: “Rugby on The Green will offer guests a unique opportunity to recreate the atmosphere of front row stadium seats, while providing the perfect solution for SW6 residents to enjoy live music and the rugby in comfort rather than face the daunting prospect of crowded pubs around London”.
As well as putting their rugby ability to test in the skills zone, guests will be able to experience an array of luxury food and entertainment, including bespoke cocktails created by Mahiki’s world-renowned mixologists to ensure the fun continues between the sporting action being shown on ‘super-sized’ screens.
Working in close partnership with the Dallalgio foundation, Rugby on the Green will also look to donate a percentage of ticket sales in support of the RugbyWorks programme. CEO Rachel Roxburugh added: “Rugby on The Green provides us with the perfect opportunity to engage with the fun loving rugby community of SW6 & show how our RugbyWorks programme has acted to inspire and support disengaged people from all backgrounds.”
There are eight scheduled Festival dates, split between two venues – Parsons Green and Fulham Palace – and with themes varying from Black Tie to Halloween to coincide with the Final, each event has something to unique.
Ticket are available from www.rugbyonthegreen.com with prices starting from £32.50 for a general admission day pass.
