Matchday entertainment

Hull Kingston Rovers are committed to providing a fantastic matchday experience for all fans whilst encouraging local talent to find a bigger audience.

At each home game we have a range of entertainment taking place around the stadium, whether that’s pre-match interviews with players in the Budget Tyres Robins Nest bar or live music in the Sewell on the go Colin Hutton Stand concourse. Make sure you arrive at the stadium early to make the most of your time with us and enjoy more than just 80 minutes of Rugby League.

On the pitch pre-match entertainment usually starts 30 minutes before kick-off and previously has seen Olly Murs, Erasure’s Andy Bell, Tony Christie, Jake Quickenden and Calum Scott headline that slot and entertain the crowds.

The club are looking for street artists to perform on game days in and around the stadium. Whether you’re a busker, juggler or just an aspiring performer of any form we want you to help contribute to our matchday experience. Anyone wishing to participate can email matchday@hullkr.co.uk along with details of their act and preferably a link to a video or audio recording.
