World Rugby’s newly opened Hall of Fame in Rugby is a must-see experience for any sports fans in the Midlands over the festive period.
Large touch-screen panels allow visitors to explore the history of the game, scroll through more than 180 of the sport’s most famous video moments (including Jonny Wilkinson’s famous, Rugby World Cup-winning dropped goal in 2003), learn about how the game is played in its various forms in 120 countries around the world and, best of all, 2.7m ‘blade’ screens project larger than life images of your choice of any of the Hall of Famers.
All your rugby heroes from every era are there – Wilkinson, Bill Beaumont, Brian O’Driscoll, JPR Williams and Andy Irvine and many, many more, 132 in total.
Unique artefacts from World Rugby’s own collections as well as personal effects donated by unions and inductees are displayed throughout the exhibition.
These, the state-of-the-art digital technologies and the archive videos giving more than six hours of available film footage makes World Rugby Hall of Fame an amazing visitor experience.
And, for a limited time only, admission is absolutely free.
Open Monday-Saturday from 10:00-17:00 and on Sunday from 10:00-16:00. It will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
