Armistice Rugby Festival 2022

We are delighted to offer you the chance to take part in an International Rugby Festival which not only offers the chance to play against teams from across Europe but also to visit sites on both the Aisne & Somme to remember those former players who served in WW1.

This 4-day festival is organised and run by our friends at Francourt Events, who strongly believe in the values of combining team building, education, and sport which makes this event unique. Open to both clubs and schools, the festival has categories for Boys U15/16 & U17/18 (Rugby 15s) and Girls U15/16 & U17/18 (Rugby 7s).
