The Rugby World Cup is coming this autumn, and it provides an excellent opportunity to connect with your community and invite your friends. Why not host a screening of one, or all of the big matches under the Engage 2015 banner. This could be part of a community festival (see idea) or a stand alone event.
Engage 2015 will provide guidelines on how to hire a big screen and keep in line with broadcasting regulations.
Some of the endless possibilities include:
- Screening a Home team match
- Supporting an underdog by choosing a lesser fancied nation - like Japan, Namibia or Romania - and making your event a celebration of their culture,
- Identifying a significant national group living in your community and screening their event, with invitations and their national food on hand.
