Eastbourne Rugby Club Hosts Three Days of Family Fun at the Free Festival of Sport!
On Friday 18 September, a three day Festival of Sport kicks off at Eastbourne Rugby Club in conjunction with Eastbourne Borough Council. There is plenty of family fun to be had at this free event which sees Eastbourne’s 1st XV Team play their first game of the season.
The rugby club are hosting the event to celebrate local sport in the community and the first game for Eastbourne's 1st XV Team, who play in the London and South East League 3, will be against the Old Dunstonians at 3pm at the club on Saturday 19 September.



Over the three day festival world class live sport including rugby and Formula One will be shown on a big screen and the event will cater for festival-goers of all ages, with a children's play area, Harvey's Hop Bar and plenty of delicious food including a hog roast, a BBQ and lots more.



Eastbourne Rugby Club Chairman, Fraser Brooks said “The Festival of Sport is a great initiative for celebrating sport in Eastbourne. Eastbourne 1st XV are excited to have support for their first match of the season and a fun event like the Festival of Sport will hopefully encourage young children watching to get into rugby or sport in general.”



The Festival has been made possible by sponsorship and support from Rix&Kay Solicitors LLP, Sanders Property Management, JP South Events, Plummer Parsons Chartered Accountants, Whitemaund, Plus Accounting Chartered Accountants, Cobb PR, Ellis Building Contractors, Neva Consultants, Eastbourne Borough Council and VisitEastbourne.
