Wednesday 27 August promises to be a memorable evening at the inaugural Carnegie Floodlit Nines and that’s even before a tackle has been made! The event, targeting a family audience, is providing a wonderful array of off the field entertainment to compliment the stars on it. Gates open at 4.30pm. Children go free and adult admission is just £10. Once inside, there will be rodeo rugby ball, bouncy castles, beat the keeper, golf chip and score, virtual racers, and an assortment of giant games. We will also have a climbing wall. These will all be free to play. In addition, there will be roaming entertainers around the whole of Headingley Carnegie Stadium – stilt walkers, costumes, jugglers, a face painter and rugby ball juggler keepie-uppie artist to add to the carnival atmosphere. Teams will enter the arena to a fanfare and on-pitch dance routine from the dancers prior to the first game. Then, in the build up to the Final, there will be a choreographed on-pitch display from a fire performance group – a team of three who will perform fire poi, fire spinning and fire juggling. Ticket prices for the event are £10 adults. Children under 16 will gain free admission when accompanied by a full paying adult. Admission can be made via the turnstile on the night or in advance from the Headingley Carnegie Ticket Office on 0870 60 60 50 or www.floodlit9s.co.uk
