Entertainment update for COKE Rugbyfest @ Hagley
The excitement is building and organisers trust Cantabrians are already making plans to get together with friends and family on the weekend of 8-9 October at COKE Rugbyfest @ Hagley. Brought to you by Coca-Cola, the free rugby themed entertainment spectacular is being held in the major event area of the Rugby World Cup 2011 Christchurch Fanzone, in North Hagley Park.
With an anticipated crowd of 40,000, COKE Rugbyfest @ Hagley will give Cantabrians the chance to experience the excitement of RWC 2011 quarter-final action via two giant super screens and enjoy on-field and on-stage entertainment from some of Christchurch’s most talented performers, musicians and dancers.
And as the countdown to RWC 2011 continues, organisers have announced the appearance of three local award winning, high energy performance groups - all girl hip hop crew Revelation Dance Crew, awarding winning All Star Pride Cheer Team and the legendary Pounamu Ngai Tahu Kapa Haka Group.
Artistic director, Kate Ward Smythe says, “Christchurch has an enormous pool of talent for us to draw from. These groups are just three of the many inspirational dance and performance groups that Christchurch has to offer, and they’ll line up on the day with some truly awesome local and regional performers.”
In line with a commitment from Coca-Cola to ensure this free event is a true Canterbury celebration, organisers have indicated the crowd can expect to see many other familiar high profile entertainers, broadcasting and rugby personalities, with more announcements on these to be made soon.
