This Saturday, between 11am and 4pm, will be your opportunity to see and take pictures with the Webb Ellis Cup, at Humberstone Gate, not far from Arch Creative HQ.
The trophy has already toured through 15 countries over the last 12 months, but has arrived back in England for the final 100 days before the tournament begins. The countdown includes Leicester as a proud Rugby World Cup host for this year’s domestic tour.
England haven’t hosted the tournament since 1991, so it’s time to get excited by celebrating the weekend with the Webb Ellis Cup, as well as other sporting activities, arts and crafts, and a treasure trail, which will all be set up in Leicester’s city centre.
The Rugby World Cup 2015 is shaping up to be the biggest tournament to date, with over 2.15 million tickets sold already!
