FOLLOWING a record-breaking attendance of 16,444 in 2017, Rugby League’s Bank Holiday Festival, the Summer Bash, returns to Blackpool on May 26 and 27 – and you could be there to see all the action if you win an Express competition.
This year’s Summer Bash at the Bloomfield Road ground boasts six exciting fixtures in the Championship, including a Blackpool debut for Toronto Wolfpack in a huge clash against Leigh Centurions.
Summer Bash is a great weekend with entertainment both on and off the pitch, live performances, fan interaction and great prizes on offer throughout. With tickets from £25 for adults and £12.50 concessions, the event promises to be great value for all the family.
Local interest centres on Featherstone Rovers who are in action on day one when they face Halifax on the Saturday in a game kicking off at 5.15pm.
