Rugby League World Cup 2013 March to the Match and Fireworks

14 August 2013

One of the many exciting events surrounding the Rugby League World Cup will be held on Tuesday 29 October 2013 before the Scotland vs Tonga Match.

A spectacular ‘March to the Match’ through Workington will launch the first Rugby League World Cup game in Workington, with Allerdale Borough Council and Lakes Alive co-ordinating an exceptional visual arts piece that showcases Companie des Quidams performance of Herbert’s Dream. This hugely acclaimed outdoor performance has been performed all over the world including the Football World Cup in France in 1998, and will ensure that this is a very special celebration.

Quidams will lead the ‘march’ from the Coastline through the town. Ticket holders and spectators will follow, leading to the Brow Top car park, where it will culminate with a fire work exhibition before onlookers go to the game with a ticket in hand to watch some great world class entertainment in the stadium.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Executive Member with responsibilities for Sports Development said “This is going to be a great event for both spectators and those simply enjoying the march and fireworks, and something different for Workington. We would encourage everyone to come along and be part of the spectacular experience and watch the fireworks with their family and friends in the community.”
