Come and join the Leicester Tigers roadshow team for what promises to be a busy week of fun and games.

The Maul, fresh from a fantastic day at the Heart of the Forest Festival in Measham on Saturday, will be at the Royal Norfolk Show, Norwich on Wednesday and Thursday.

Attendances regularly top 100,000, and this year the visitors will include Her Royal Highness Princess Anne. The Princess Royal is a big rugby fan and the patron of Scottish Rugby.

Visitors to The Maul will have the chance to win a free family ticket to the opening home match of next season at Welford Road with our Speed Passing Challenge, Spot The Ball competition and interactive quiz. Younger fans will have chance to meet the club mascot Leicester the Tiger.

Sarah de Chair, show manager, said: “The show is not just about animals and farming, although they do play a very important role in this two day extravaganza.

“We have entertainment for everyone, from a working vintage farm machinery demonstration to motorbike displays and abseiling for those needing an adrenalin buzz.”

The Maul will return to Leicestershire on Saturday (1pm-4pm) for the St Joseph’s School Fete in Coventry Road, Market Harborough. Hundreds of people are expected to attend the event. Tigers will be running our competitions as well coaching for youngsters and there will be the chance to meet Leicester The Tiger.

On Sunday, The Maul will be at the Market Bosworth Country Show at Cow Pastures Farm (8am-5pm). Leicester The Tiger will be there for games and competitions and coaching with our community coaches.

More than 4,000 people attended the Heart of the Forest Festival in Measham on Saturday. Many took part in the Speed Passing Challenge and lots of young fans met Leicester The Tiger and had their photograph taken with the Tigers mascot.

However, the roadshow team met their match in the tug of war, losing to the Holly Bush, despite the best efforts of Leicester.
