Cicentennial Celebration of Rugby

This year is the bicentennial celebration of rugby football. The birthplace of Rugby is only a short drive from Kenilworth and you can see The Close where rugby football first began. There is also a visual and audible exhibition, (photographs, memorabilia, video footage and interviews with previous members of Rugby School’s XV) you will learn about how the game has developed since William Webb Ellis first took the ball in his arms and ran with it. The next event day is 18th November.
