July 2 @ 10:00 am – 5:30 pm BST
As one of the UK’s most vibrant and exciting cities to live in and visit, plus a reputation for a great nightlife, Bristol is an ideal city to host a Tag Rugby festival! This will be the third TagFest hosted within the city and we are looking forward to welcoming teams from around the country yet again for this year’s event.
This year’s event will return to Lockleaze Sports Centre, a modern venue towards the north of the city. It is a very popular venue with our Bristol teams and has great facilities to host a tag festival!
There will be a real party atmosphere during the day, with music, fancy dress (theme TBC closer to the time) and BBQ. The presentation will take place at the venue before the after party to be held in Bristol city centre (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.

– Regular Try Tag Rugby Rules apply
– Maximum of 12 players per squad, maximum of 4 male players on the pitch at any one time
– Teams can include a maximum of four international players*
