What's On At Wembley This Saturday
Petrus Du Plessis was superb, and I’m not sure how he wasn’t Man of the Match, as to scrummage that way against Marcos Ayerza takes some doing. I thought he was brilliant today." - See more at: http://www.saracens.com/news-article/mccall-hails-pack-performance-after-tigers-result#sthash.tZ9etc1v.dpuf
There's plenty taking place at Wembley this Saturday when Saracens take on Harlequins in Derby Day!
The main pre-match and half time entertainment this year will come from UK pop star Foxes.
In the past 10 months Foxes has sold out two UK tours, starred in an international H&M campaign, performed with a 48 piece orchestra at London Jazz Festival, won a Guinness World Record and fronted a campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
Foxes’ music is disco tinged pop which clearly shows the influence of dance music on its writer. In fact her Grammy Award for a collaboration with Zedd on the song Clarity was won in the category of best dance song. “I don't want something to be straight down the line pop” Foxes said on the style of her music, “I want to make it a little more interesting.”
On Saturday Foxes will perform her tracks Better Love, Amazing and Let Go as well as the lead single from her new album, Body Talk.
As well as Foxes there will also be entertainment from Wembley regulars Rock Choir.
Returning to Wembley for the sixth year, Rock Choir will perform well known, feel-good hits and add a touch of Rock Choir sparkle to the Wembley atmosphere at this afternoon’ game.
Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir, with nearly 23,000 members in over 320 local communities. There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience. Rock Choir members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially arranged pop, rock and chart songs. There are lots of exciting performances throughout the year and many of them help raise money for charity.
And to top it off both performances will be accompagnied by thousands of participants from the Saracens Sport Foundation!
Dance @ Wembley is an ever growing community based project run by the Saracens Sport Foundation and this year 2500 dancers across all ages and parts of the country will be showcasing their dance performances throughout the day.
Love to Dance, our over 50’s participation and wellbeing project, will be opening the show as they shimmy and shake to Rock Choirs feel good tunes. Dance at Wembley are also excited to welcome back our partners Pro-Excel for the second year at Wembley Stadium. Led by Creative Director and three time Olivier Award nominee Jason Pennycooke, they will perform a pre-match show accompanying Foxes.
Also performing and set to wow the crowd with their stunting, acrobats and dancing are the Saracens School of Cheer who will perform at half time. The performance will include 27 schools who will take to the pitch alongside Foxes as she performs the lead single from her new album ‘Body Talk’ and are hoping to encompass Foxes’ desire that people “dance and feel free and be happy and fearless!”
With all this taking place on top of some of the best rugby in the Aviva Premiership this year's game is shaping up to be one of the best yet!
