The Maul heads to Coalville Motorfest and Melton Mowbray County Fair this weekend after a successful few days with the Tigers Family in Norfolk.

The Tigers roadshow team joins visitors to Coalville town centre on Saturday for a day of entertainment for the whole family between 10am and 4pm.
And from 10am to 5pm on Sunday the Maul will be at the Melton County Fair, Town Estates Park, Melton.
For its visit to Coalville Motorfest, the Maul will be based at the Belvoir Shopping Centre. Visitors will be able to take on the Speed Pass Challenge and the Smash-o-Meter with tickets to the opening game of the new Aviva Premiership season on offer for the best score.
Fans are also encouraged to take a #welfie – a selfie photograph with club mascot Welford – and to share it with @LeicesterTigers on Twitter and Instagram. Our favourites will win a junior Tigers shirt.
Young Tigers fans can sign up to the Junior Tigers Club for free and receive a Tigers flag and a #Tigesfamily wristband.

Older supporters can take up e-membership and also receive some Tigers goodies, including a car sticker, a pen and a #Tigersfamily wristband.

And fans can capture their Tigers moment in our special photobooth with the choice of three backgrounds, including Welford Road stadium. Have your photo taken alongside Vereniki Goneva, Dan Cole, Manu Tuilagi, Geoff Parling and Anthony Allen, or with some of the great players in Tigers' recent history including Martin Johnson, Geordan Murphy and Martin Corry.
The Belvoir Shopping Centre will also be home to a ‘Coalville Summer Staycation’ with its own British seaside beach and a Pimm’s bar. An exclusive collection of car and vehicle dealerships will be located at Needhams Walk Car Park and there will be exhibitions at the Snibston Discovery Museum Arena.

The Big Boot, the half-time entertainment hugely popular with supporters at Welford Road, will be fired up for action at the Melton Mowbray County Fair. Any participant who catches a Big Boot ball will be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets to the opening home game of the season.
There will also be chances to win tickets on the Speed Pass Challenge and the Smash-o-meter, and there will be the usual Maul attractions, including Welford, the photo booth and JTC goodies.

The roadshow team, meanwhile, has enjoyed an excellent few days with the Tigers Family in Norfolk.
The Maul visited Norwich RFC’s family fun evening for a barbecue, competitions and games. The team then enjoyed two great days of weather as they joined HRH The Duke of Wessex and 85,000 visitors to the Royal Norfolk Show.
Show director Julian Taylor said: ““Everybody has thoroughly enjoyed the show and it’s been wonderful to see all these young families about.”
