As one of the UK’s most vibrant and exciting cities to live in and visit, plus a reputation for a great nightlife it is no surprise that the inaugural TagFest™ Bristol in 2019 was hugely successful. This year’s event looks as though it will be no different, with the event once again set to welcome teams from around the country.
With a capacity of 20 teams, you need to be quick though! This year’s event will be held at Cotham Park Rugby Club to the West of the City, next to Ashton Court Estate and out past Bristol’s iconic suspension bridge.
There will be a real party atmosphere during the day, with a live DJ, fancy dress (theme TBC closer to the time) and BBQ. The presentation and after match social will take place in the club house before an after party in Bristol later in the night (venue details to be disclosed nearer the time). Make a fantastic day and night of it, feel free to bring your friends and enjoy everything Bristol and its nightlife has to offer. All social elements will depend on the Covid-19 situation and will be adapted accordingly at the time.
