Yorkshire and North East feature in rugby-themed Visit England campaign


The Yorkshire Dales and the Tyne Bridge are among the locations to feature in a new rugby-themed TV campaign for VisitEngland.

The tourism body has launched the ‘Discover Your England’ campaign a few months before the country hosts the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Set to the unofficial English anthem ‘Jerusalem’, the 60-second slot includes appearances from England captain Martin Corry MBE, England head coach Stuart Lancaster and Rugby World Cup 2014 winner, Maggie Alphonsi MBE.

It was shot in 4K by Rich Thrift of Channel 5 Creative, and premiered during Big Brother at 9.30pm last night.
