    Entertainment

    International operatic tenor Lawrence Robinson will be performing on the pitch before kick off at 12:40 and again at halftime this weekend.

    Currently recognised as one of the leading tenor voices in the country, over the past decade he has performed at some of the biggest stadiums in the country, and on some of the biggest stages around the world!

    He's performed the National Anthem before major rugby and football internationals and finals, and in 2003 was on-hand to serenade the victorious England team and the Webb Ellis Trophy back through the Arrivals Hall at Heathrow.

    No stranger to Adams Park, Laurence is looking forward to a return to London Wasps. "I've performed there a few times - most memorably almost 10 years ago when Lawrence Dallaglio and the rest of the English players at Wasps brought the World Cup to Adams Park - there was an amazing atmosphere, and I'm delighted to be invited back to perform this weekend."

    Q & As


    There will be Q&As with a selection of Wasps players before the game in both the Vere Suite (12.00) and the Woodlands Lounge (12.15) hosted by David Kurk.

    Following the match, there will be Q&A's with former Wasp Nic Berry who will talk about life after rugby, and run through his preparation for the upcoming London Marathon which is he running for Club charity Mind.
