Once you’ve had your fill of mince pies and festive telly, it can be tricky to know what to do with yourself at Twixtmas — you know, those limbo five days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve when everyone seems to go into hibernation. But if you’re feeling that cabin fever set in and have access to London, you can thank your lucky stars for Big Game 11.

The worlds of rugby and entertainment collide at this festive family favourite, where Harlequins will take on their old rivals, Wasps RFC. As well as nail-biting sporting action from these two premiership teams, spectators can look forward to jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, floor-filling live music, and games for all ages.

This year’s headliners are revolutionary street theatre troupe Spark! They’ll be setting Twickenham Stadium ablaze with a show that combines high impact drumming with dynamic choreography and mind-blowing lighting design.

There’s also loads going on in the West Fan Village, for seasoned sports fans and total newbies alike. Fancy honing your hockey skills? England Hockey will be holding coaching clinics on an inflatable pitch. Want to get your hands on some Harlequins merch? Find as many rugby balls as you can in 15 seconds to win prizes including signed shirts, match tickets, and the chance to watch the team train.

Guys can get a new look with help of Gillette, which is offering free shaves from trained barbers, or get some respite from the kids in The Man Van, where you can get your hair cut aboard a huge American style camper van while having a natter about male health and well-being.

It may sound trite to say that there’s something for everyone, but how many sporting events do you know that include pampering, wacky challenges, and street theatre? So bring the whole brood to the home of English rugby and cheer on the best in the business with some 75,000 fellow fans.

Big Game 11, 1pm-7.30pm on Saturday 29 December 2018. Tickets start at £15 for juniors and £25 for adults, with group discounts available for groups of 5 or more. Get yours here.
