Scotland’s 6 Nations Campaign on the Big Screen

Thanks to Heart of Hawick, fans of Scottish rugby will be able to enjoy Scotland’s Six Nations campaign for free! We are screening four of Scotland’s Six Nations Scottish rugby matches live on the big screen in the auditorium at Tower Mill!

This is the first time that we have streamed live sport on the cinema screen and we are starting with the biggest screening of the rugby in the town.

With Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors both reaching the Champions Cup quarter-finals at the weekend, and with the country’s ever-improving performance and results, the Scottish Rugby team, led by skipper Greig Laidlaw, should be feeling quietly confident.

 

We aim to invest in the community and using the new projector to screen a high-quality event to the Borders allows everyone to come together to support Scotland in their Six Nations campaign.

Sophy Delavigne, our lovely Operations Manager at Heart of Hawick, had this to say:

“As a charity, we want our venue to be a place where the whole community can come together for events, and this is a great opportunity to come together to support the Scottish team. This is the first time we have live-streamed any sporting event on our cinema screen, and we can’t wait to see how good it looks on the biggest screen in Hawick. It is hoped that with the aid of the new projector, the audience will feel as if they are there in the action.”

Food and drink available at the screenings and a bar is available in the auditorium.

The events are free, but tickets should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment! Our screenings kicked off on Saturday 2 February 13:30 with Scotland vs Italy, so join us now for the rest of Scotland’s (hopefully) epic campaign:

Saturday 9 February 13:30: Scotland vs Ireland

Saturday 23 February 13:30: France vs Scotland

Saturday 16 March 16:15: England vs Scotland
