The Rugby League World Cup Cultural Festival is an ambitious, inclusive, multidisciplinary festival bringing together audiences for sport and art around the tournament. Taking place in Newcastle, Hull, Leeds and Manchester, the festival will amplify “The Power of Together” and celebrate inclusivity and positive social impact.
A spectacular new outdoor performance brings the atmosphere and passion of the Rugby League out of the stadium and onto the streets. All before kick-off. This specially-commissioned free show, which features dance, music and aerial performance, tells three unique stories about the game and its people, charting how it has evolved from its roots to the sport we see today which inspires such passion in its fans.
