It’s back! The 2018 Rugby4Heroes Festival: 11th – 13th May 2018

2018 is set to be the BIGGEST yet for its Grand Finale!

We’re planning on making this year’s event the biggest, greatest and most successful Rugby4Heroes festival ever. We’re going to have more food, more music, more beer and of course a heap of Rugby including Elite 7s, Social 10s, Veterans and Mini Rugby tournaments on the Sunday too.

We are proud to repeat our Elite 7s rugby competition, featuring some of the UK’s top teams.

Last year we had another record breaking year all thanks to the fantastic crowds and of course some great weather. We’ve ordered the weather again this year and we really hope we’ll see you there too.

Just book your tickets here and you’ll be on the list for May 2018

We also have fantastic glamping option with our partners Honeybells! Sadly we are now sold out of Glamping packages for the 2018 Festival.
