The Easter Rugby and Hockey Festival was first staged in 2002 as a key event in celebrating King Edward VII School`s Centenary. It was originally planned as a once off Festival but as a result of the huge success it turned out to be, became an integral component of the School`s annual calendar.
The Festival has a unique `family` flavour and is considered an annual pilgrimage for multitudes of old boys, and friends of the School. Senior rugby and hockey teams, as well as enthusiastic Primary School teams showcase their skills over a period of 3 days. +- 40 teams, 16 senior rugby, 15 hockey & still TBC junior rugby teams, in 2019 will participate and provide visitors and supporters with a feast of top class schoolboy sport.
