Classical star to headline entertainment at Grand Final
1:57pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in Wolves news
CLASSICAL star Hayley Westenra will headline the pre-match entertainment at Saturday's Super League Grand Final.
She has sold more than four million albums worldwide since bursting onto the scene in 2003 and will perform a rendition of ‘Jerusalem’ prior to kick-off as Warrington take on Leeds.
She will be accompanied by symphonic brass band Ottoni Brass, who will make their second appearance at the Super League Grand Final having first appeared as part of the pre-match entertainment 12 months ago.
Spectators will also be treated to a series of acrobatic feats from balletic artist Lilli Muelheisen, who will perform suspended from The Heliosphere, a helium filled balloon that will glide over the heads of spectators as kick-off approaches.
Former England, Hull FC and St Helens player Steve Prescott will be travelling to Old Trafford via a 48-hour ‘quadrathon’ which will see him attempt to swim both the Humber and Mersey rivers, cycle from Hull to Liverpool and canoe 26 miles along the Liverpool canal to deliver the match ball before conducting the official coin toss.
The Stobart Super League ‘Fanzone’ will also be at Old Trafford this Saturday with lots of fun activities for families – including skills games, the Rugby League World Cup Roadshow, face-painters and more.
