Looking for a new touring destination? Welcome to the newest festival in the North East and this has the potential to be the biggest too! A rarity in that this is the only event of its kind in the North East, we have teamed up with West Hartlepool RFC and their facility is the perfect festival venue. The brand-new clubhouse and perfect playing surfaces give everything a fresh feel to this event. It is only a few minutes away from the superb holiday park so you don’t waste any time travelling and focus more on your 'tackle' on the Tees. The perfect end of season tour awaits you on Teeside!


Crimdon Dene holiday park (Parkdean Resorts) offers spectacular sea views from most of their units. It is less than a ten-minute ride to the rugby club and with plenty to keep the kids entertained, the parents can feel like they are on tour too! Let’s face it most parents are here to satisfy their own love of touring!! That’s why we take care of the children’s needs.

The older age groups U14-U16 will be accommodated in hotels/hostels in the local area. Why not stay in Newcastle the thriving heartbeat of the North East.  Please enquire for further details. 

Teams arrive and will check into their chosen holiday park/hotel and will be welcomed by our friendly Front Row staff. In the evening, there will be a coaches meeting where we will introduce key personnel that will be there to ensure the smooth running of your tour, and ensure that you maximise the tour experience for the children. It will also be an opportunity to run through any last-minute queries and for the RFU Continuum rules to be fully understood. We will have a referee in attendance who will clarify any law  variations.

New for 2018! Teams will have the choice of taking part in specialist coaching clinics delivered by some of the game’s biggest names. For those wanting more rugby we will organise playing a friendly/warm-up fixture. Or for those who want to be free to go on an excursion or activity we can arrange this for your group. The team at Front Row want you to have a degree of flexibility in what you want from the weekend. Whatever you decide we will ensure that lasting memories are made all tailored to your requirements.

Older age groups that are not staying in holiday park accommodation will be welcome to base themselves for a typical Saturday night at the rugby club where the usual tour antics will be in full swing!

Festival day. Teams in the U12 age group and below will play in a participation only event where all the children will receive a participation award. Teams U13 and above will play in a competitive tournament. We want total transparency on this to avoid any confusion and disappointment prior to arriving at the event.

Check out of accommodation and head home having been fully ‘Tackled ‘on the Tees!!
