Engage 2015 is excited to be in partnership with the Festival of Rugby. The Festival of Rugby has been launched by England Rugby and The Rugby Football Union as a focal point for community events with a link to the sport. Earlier in the year Engage 2015 met with the organisers of the Festival of Rugby to establish a relationship of mutual benefit.
The festival, which runs from 10 June to the 31 October 2015, is open to all and event hosts are invited to register online for tips, support and promotion of their rugby-linked events. It is also possible to search for local events on the site to support community activities around rugby.
Says David Chawner, UK Coordinator, ‘This is a great partnership because it means churches and faith based organisations can get added support for their event and play an active part in contributing to the Festival of Rugby’
Engage 2015 encourages the churches and organisations using their resources to register on both Festival of Rugby and Engage 2015 websites.
