They won the Challenge Cup again in 2012 and hosted matches in the Rugby League World Cup in 2013.

Events, fetes and festivals take place throughout the year across the area including, Warrington Walking Day, classic car shows, the annual contemporary arts festival, farmers and themed markets - and even a welly-wanging competition!
