Franklin’s Gardens restaurant to open for busy autumn of rugby

Franklin’s Gardens is set to open its doors once again this autumn to offer unique dining and hospitality experiences for screenings of both Northampton Saints and England international matches.

While crowds are still unable to watch live sport from inside stadium bowls under current government guidelines, there remains a plethora of top-class rugby to take in this autumn season – and Franklin’s Gardens will be the place to enjoy it all.

The restaurant season kicks off on Saturday 31 October with a very special Six Nations ‘Super Saturday’ lunch, which will also be combined with Tom Wood’s Testimonial year and Northampton Saints’ 2019-20 Season Awards.

Join us in ‘Woody’s Restaurant’ in the Rodber Bar, where the legendary Saints flanker will act as host for the afternoon’s festivities – which will include a sumptuous five-course meal, screenings of Italy vs England and France vs Ireland matches, and the exclusive revealing of Saints’ End of Season awards winners between the games.

Hot on the heels of the conclusion of the 2020 Six Nations, Eddie Jones’ England side will also contest the Autumn Nations Cup, and three matches are available to watch from the Gardens.

With a five-course meal, silent auction, and appearances from Saints/England legends all on offer within the Rodber Bar, tickets can be booked for just £99 per person or a special price of £275 for three matches.

Meanwhile the men in Black, Green and Gold will be hoping for a fast start to the new Gallagher Premiership campaign in November, and Saints’ trip to Bristol Bears on Friday 4 December will be screened from the Barwell and South Stand boxes at Franklin’s Gardens.

PLEASE NOTE:
All events are dependent on prevailing government guidance at the scheduled date of the event, and are therefore subject to change.
Book with confidence – refunds will be offered if for any reason the event cannot go ahead as planned.
