We visited the Try It Festival in the Rugby World Cup Fanzone in Richmond to see a new World Record being set for the largest tag rugby tournament in numbers of players. The event, held each year, was the biggest yet this year, with the Rugby World Cup at the centre, bringing together schools within the London community to engage in the game and in competition.We caught up with the event organiser to find out what it was all about and how the event had gone. #rwc2015 #worldrecord #dontdroptheball #richmond #rugby #community #jesus #twickenham

Engage 2015 | Stories | Introduction to Brixton BlocBrixton Bloc is a new venue, based in the heart of Brixton itself in London. The venue, situated a stones throw from the O2 academy, was until a few months ago, a hotspot for many issues and problems such as prostitution and drug dealing. Wesley Evans, a Long standing resident of the area, has taken the area on and created Brixton Bloc. He aims to transform the area from being a place of negativity to a place where many can draw positive experiences from and enhance the community feel. The venue will be playing host to screening of all the Rugby World Cup matches throughout the tournament. This is just one of many transformation stories we are hearing throughout the UK.
