St John's College

We look forward to hosting you at the 24th St John’s College Easter Rugby Festival, proudly sponsored by Standard Bank on the 18th, 20th and 22nd of April as we celebrate the best in schoolboy rugby.

There are no league tables, trophies or medals – this is about the love of rugby, school spirit and community. St John's College welcomes visitors to the festival from far and wide, and this year will be no different as we have a phenomenal line-up of College and Prep schools participating.

This is a wonderful day out for the whole family with the Spur Kids Zone play area, tea garden, food trucks and the Heineken Beer Village available for your enjoyment. The festival DJs will hit the decks after the Thursday night clash and Watershed will be performing their greatest hits with a two hour set on the Saturday night. A big screen TV alongside the Heineken Beer Village will ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the other sporting action over the weekend.

The CourierIT VIP Deck overlooking Burger Field will bring you closer to the game than ever before. This perfectly appointed and luxuriously furnished tented deck is terraced for great rugby viewing. This VIP area offers serviced lounge areas with a full bar, gourmet food stations, private bathrooms and access to an exclusive garden within the Heineken Beer Village.

And of course, we will be showcasing the best of schoolboy rugby on Burger and C Rugby Fields. Disabled Parking is available at the D Rugby Field entrance where guests will be escorted by security to the designated Disabled Parking area.

All College games will be live-streamed via our website for Johannians, family and friends who cannot make it to the Festival.

For your safety and convenience, the St John's College Easter Rugby Festival is a cashless event making use of pre-loaded Standard Bank cards, SnapScan and all Debit and Credit Cards.
