Sevens And
The City 2017

Our 4th year here at Allianz Park, North London, is set to be bigger and better than ever before! Not only have we added Football, Cricket and Dodgeball to the festival but we are very excited to welcome special guests GoldFish to headline our Saturday night party!

Elite and Social Rugby 7s, Netball and our very own Summer Slam CrossFit competition will return. The addition of new sports, Football, Dodgeball, Cricket and the use of the whole of Barnet Copthall fields surrounding Allianz Park gives this years event a larger and more connected feel with more Food trucks and Bar options than ever before.

The All stars Worldwide Currencies Cup will see a host of ex-International Rugby legends such as John Smit and Ugo Monye playing in support of RPA charity Restart and the #LiftTheWeight campaign.

Expect Live Music, DJs, Craft beer, Cocktail bars and your favourite brands on display throughout the weekend. Camping and Glamping is available as well as VIP areas, pitchside cabanas and a brand new pitchside marquee you cannot get closer to the action!

On Saturday we have two Kids Rugby Clinics run by School of Hard Knocks with special International Rugby Star guest coaches.

Hosts David Strettle and Matt Stevens welcome you all, athletes and spectators alike, to get stuck in and have a fantastic weekend!
