If you enjoyed the Lionesses at the Community Stadium join us for the Colchester World Cup Event on 14 June.
The Lionesses match at the Community Stadium was a night to remember and some of you will have been to last year’s Colchester World Cup Event at the Arts Centre with Carrie Dunn the author of the Roar of the Lionesses. On the 14th June we are back for another World Cup event but this time we’re at the New Inn and we will be cheering on the Lionesses.
Carrie the star of our last World Cup event is back to provide us with history, context and expert punditry and this time we will also be watching match on the New Inn’s huge flat screen. Carrie authored the Roar of the Lionesses and she is currently writing The Pride of the Lionesses. You can read a review of her excellent first book in When Saturday Comes here:
Charlie is pulling together the football choir! Oh, and Carrie can sing a bit as well!
Expect excellent ale, flags, banners, pictures, competitions, prizes, interviews and punditry with Carrie, beautiful singing, poetry, film clips and of course the match on live TV (ko 8pm). Tickets £5 available from the New Inn. All 16+ young people welcome as well as oldies. Students can attend for nowt!
The fee is to cover our expenses – travel expenses, prizes, flyers, bunting etc – and any profit will be donated to Boots 2 Africa our favourite football charity. If you have any unused football boots please bring them along. The Charity details are here:
The venue is the New Inn CAMRA’s Colchester Pub of the year for the last three years and the undisputed Essex Pub of the Year in 2017.
So, if you’re coming and you want to make sure you’ve definitely got a seat pop into the New Inn and they have tickets behind the bar.
Finally, don’t forget the Lionesses are going into the World Cup as third in the FIFA rankings and with the confidence of their She Believes competition victory. We might actually win a World Cup!
Come on you Col U fans we’re in desperate need of success and victory.
Come and join us to support the Lionesses! Why only have one World Cup when you can have two?
