Free Rugby Festival to launch 150th Celebrations

2 July 2015

This summer, the Bath Rugby Community team will be holding a FREE family festival of rugby to officially launch the Club’s historic 150th anniversary year.

On Saturday 8th August, the Recreation Ground will host a day of fun rugby activities for youngsters of all ages, with free entry for all the family. There will be plentiful options of food and drink on the day, with concession stands located around the ground.

A series of insightful question-and-answer sessions – focusing on nutrition, strength and conditioning and the Academy system – will culminate in a Q&A with Head Coach Mike Ford.
