The London Wasps St. George’s Day Game against Bath this Saturday promises to be much more than just a game of rugby with a packed day of entertainment planned.

It is celebration of what it means to be English, bringing together patriots of all ages to mark the special day with a diverse range of entertainment on and off the pitch at Twickenham Stadium.

Ahead of the big kick-off at 5.30pm, there will be live music and fantastic entertainment all afternoon in the famous West Car Park.

An EMC Fastest Pass competition will give fans a chance to test themselves against a world record set by Wasps scrum-half Joe Simpson last week. There will be inflatables for the kids to have fun with as well as a live DJ entertaining match-goers. London Wasps will also be distributing thousands of free Lindt chocolate bunnies to celebrate Easter Saturday.

The day is all about raising money for four special military charities and the military theme will also be seen in the entertainment on the day.

Family entertainment pre and post kick off

As well as giving fans the chance to get up close and personal with one of the most iconic flying machines in the world, there will be paintballing games, an inflatable assault course and other military displays to keep all the family entertained both pre and post kick off.

There will be a paintball zone open before the match and for airplane enthusiasts there will be a real-life Red Arrow plane on display at the stadium.

The entertainment will continue as the big game approaches, with a parade of British troops returning from Afghanistan, and a very special performance from Heather Small backed by the Pro Excel dancers who will be setting a Guinness World Record at Twickenham on the day.

Up to 800 schoolchildren from across the country will join soul singer, Small on pitch at half time to set a new Guinness World Record for "The Biggest Ever Backing Dance Troupe for a Singer."

In the stadium, there will also be a patriotic sing along, tag rugby displays and some special abseiling displays.

Bars and merchandise units will also be open in the West Car Park at 1pm. Bars in the West Car Park will close 30 minutes before kick-off will re-open again post-match until 8.30pm.

Tickets are still available for purchase from just £15 for adults and £8 for kids by calling 0844 225 2990 and will also be available from Twickenham on the day.
