The home of English rugby has relaunched its in-house museum in the South Stand, to the tune of £1.8m. The new World Rugby Museum houses a ‘prestigious collection’ of rugby memorabilia from around the globe, comprising 38,000 artefacts (including the 'world's oldest football jersey') and a host of interactive installations.
The events team at Twickenham
has high hopes for the museum, suggesting corporate groups use the space as an incentive option (possibly as part of a wider stadium tour) or as a breakout session following a conference in one of the South Stand’s recently upgraded event spaces.
Nils Braude, catering and conference events director at the venue said, ‘It’s an unusual and highly visual space that’s great for a champagne reception, or just to allow delegates to stroll around in their own time.’
We particularly like the museum’s interactive zone, where delegates can find out what sort of rugby player they are by testing their kicking skills, speed and agility using ‘cutting-edge displays’. For those who’d rather just watch, the events team promises lots of 'commentary, film and match footage'.
