The food & drink and music line-up for an exciting sporting community event in North Herts has been revealed.

The popular North Herts Rugby and Netball festival returns next month - and is bigger and better than ever.

The eagerly-awaited event will take place on Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13 and will bring the best of the rugby and netball world together with our North Herts community to celebrate sport, music and good food. 

Renowned local music will be showcased with Lawrence Hill, Dave Foster, Troi Parker Roth, SK & and The Kings and Cardinal Kings will all be playing across the two-days festival.

With mouth-watering food options available from the acclaimed Cantinas Carnitas and Amani Kitchen to name but two.

Hitchin Rugby Club will once again host the North Herts Rugby and Netball festival next month.

The rugby club will host 16 men's teams, 14 netball teams and 13 ladies rugby teams on the Saturday - with more than 500 people expected to be playing sport throughout the course of the day. 

Tireless organiser Adam Howard told Nub News: "We look forward to welcoming a large number of local clubs including Hitchin, Letchworth and Datchworth - plus sides who will be travelling a little further to the day coming all the way from Reading, Guernsey and Hackney. 

"In addition, we welcome some of the best local musical talent to the stage on both Friday night and Saturday plus some of the best food vendors and pop up bars Hitchin has to offer," adding, "This is also a fantastic fund raiser for the club as the bar usually records one of it's biggest takings of the season on the day. "
