  • Thousands of people took to the streets of Workington for a spectacular theatre performance and the town’s two matches of the Rugby League World Cup 2013. The March to the Match saw giant stilt-walking creatures lead a procession of torch-carrying spectators through the town centre, before a firework display lit up the sky at Brow Top.  During the day, pop-up opera wowed shoppers and visiting fans alike, crowds were entertained by schoolchildren and dancers from across West Cumbria, as well as the RLWC 2013 Choir and the final part of the RLWC cultural programme took place at the Carnegie Theatre on Sunday 3 November with a fantastic performance of La Bohème.

  • On the pitch, it was a great week for the Scotland squad too. They beat Tonga 26-24 in the first game and drew 30 - 30 with Italy at Derwent Park, which helped put them on their way to the Quarter finals against New Zealand - they put up a fantastic fight but couldn't get more than 4 points against one of the tournaments top teams, who eventually lost in the final to favourites, Australia.
