Join The Falcons For A Weekend By The Sea

Friday 4 July 2014

This summer seas the return of the popular Flock Summer party, followed a day later with our Beach Touch tournament.

This year’s Flock Summer Party takes play on Saturday 19th July (11am – 1pm) on Tynemouth Longsands. Offering a day of summer fun for members of our junior supporters club, the Flock, and their families, the party will involve face painting, a sandcastle competition, beach volley ball, beach rugby and a bouncy castle, with Falcons players coming along to join in the fun.

The party, in conjunction with Sport North Tyneside, is free of charge to all members of the Flock, Newcastle Falcons’ junior supporters club, which is completely free to join. Flash the Falcon will also be in attendance to lead his annual mascot race!
