“Try Then, Try Now” : Warrington Festival Closing Ceremony

By September 18, 2015News

As the Inaugural Warrington Festival comes to a close, The Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation present “Try Then, Try Now” as part of their 10th Birthday celebrations.

Choreographed by the Artistic Director of Phoenix Dance Theatre; Sharon Watson and reworked and rehearsed by local choreographer Stacey Goodall, the performance will be final piece of the closing ceremony of the month-long festival held to celebrate everything that is great about Warrington.

The choreography “Try Then/Try Now” is a celebration of 120 years of Rugby League. Using extracts from live Rugby League commentary spanning over a century, the piece is inspired by the highs and lows of the game – highlighting the teamwork and dedication of those both on and off the pitch.

The piece is performed by The Wolves Foundation’s dancers of all ages and abilities as part of the Warrington Festival. The young people involved in the performance recently performed the piece at Wembley Stadium to a crowd of 80,000 at the Challenge Cup Final as part of the Join the Momentum project with Rugby League Cares.

The closing ceremony will take place on Sunday 20th September at Bank Park at 1.45pm, following the English Half Marathon and 10k celebrations, where The Foundation also have 20 runners taking part!
