The registration forms for Bikefest are available on the Rugby First website. Any individual motorcyclist or group can register for the Ride In and display in the town centre on Sunday 17 May . Food and drink traders can also enquire about a stall by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The callout for artists to take part in this year’s Rugby Festival of Culture has gone out. Rugby First together with Rugby Borough Council, local venues and performers, are now planning the tenth anniversary programme. Businesses who would like to host an event are welcome to complete the online form from Rugby First’s website before the closing date of Friday 28 February.
Bikefest will return to Rugby on Sunday 17 May and for the first time will include the Wall of Death attraction.
There is fun for the whole family, stalls, live music, food and drink and children’s entertainment in this popular day out, which last year attracted over 6,000 people into town to see the bikes and join in the fun.
This year we will be working closely with motorcycle groups to put on a great event and if you don’t normally open up on a Sunday we can recommend that it will be worth your while!
On Wednesday 15 January Rugby First will be welcoming Coventry & Warwickshire Champions networking group to the town for the first time.
Held at the Collingwood Centre in Rugby School, this breakfast meeting will start at 7.30am and includes refreshments. A high quality line up of three business speakers for the event will be announced shortly and tickets are available via Eventbrite.
Do you run a food and drink business in Rugby town centre? Then come along to our briefing and find out about our exciting plans to help market the town’s food and drink offer.
Next year we will be launching a new food and drink guide, a new Real Ale Trail and Rugby’s first Restaurant Week. There will also be a series of changes to the Rugby Food & Drink Festival and opportunities to run fringe events during the festival and take part in the new ‘Talks & Tastings’ tent.
Taking place from 5 – 6pm on Wednesday 22 January upstairs at Libertine Burger, these new activities have been created to help market your business, give the night time economy a boost and give visitors from the wider region reasons to come into Rugby. All food and drink businesses will receive a separate invitation to this business briefing shortly.
Together with support from the Rotary Clubs of Rugby, this event helps to raise funds for local children’s charities. There will be an entry cost of £3 and all children will receive a present.
