Heckington Show a huge success

Figure image
Leicester Tigers, the most successful and best supported club in the country, enjoyed two successful days at the Heckington Show, the largest village show in the country.

Thousands of visitors attended the event with the Tigers mobile unit, The Maul, a popular attraction.

Visitors of all ages attempted to win a family ticket to the opening home game of next season on the Tigers interactive quiz, the Spot The Ball Wall and the Speedpass Challenge.

Young players improved their skills during coaching sessions with the Tigers community team and had their photographs taken with club mascot, Leicester The Tiger.

Chris Rose, Tigers head of brand development, said: “We enjoy very close links with Lincolnshire and have a lot of season ticket holders in the county but the level of support for the Leicester Tigers never ceases to amaze us.

“It was a fantastic event and great to be able to meet Tigers fans new and old outside of the rugby season.”
