Darcey Bussell, Will Greenwood, Jordan Henderson, Anthony Ogogo, Jonnie Peacock and Beth Tweddle launched the inaugural Sports Show as tickets go on sale.
Founded by rugby players Will Greenwood and Austin Healey, the event will be on 25th and 26th June 2016 and has secured the participation of 13 National Governing Bodies, the support of Sport England and some of Britain’s athletes.
The event will take place six weeks ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham and will offer experiences to kids and families from all over the country. More than 30 sports will be available to try all under one roof with coaching with some of the country’s sporting heroes.
Will Greenwood said: “I have played sport for as long as I can remember and grew up with rugby all around me, but I have always been keen to try my hand at anything and that is what we want to offer all the kids and parents coming to the Sports Show.”
