The World Rugby Museum is delighted to announce our launch of a travelling version of our special exhibition 'The Rugby World Cup: In Her Own Words'. This September, ticket holders to the Red Roses warm-up games at both Sandy Park and Ashton Gate will have the chance to explore the history of the women's Rugby World Cups from 1991 through to this year's tournament.
The 'pop-up' exhibition will be in the Exeter Suite at Sandy Park on 3 September 2022, where fans can visit before, during, and after the Red Roses v USA game.
On 14 September, fans watching the Red Roses v Wales match in Bristol can catch the exhibition between the South and West Concourses. Visitors to Ashton Gate can also see several objects from the World Rugby Museum's collection, on loan specifically for the pop-up exhibition, including the recently rediscovered original Women's Rugby World Cup trophy!
'The Rugby World Cup: In Her Own Words' is a co-curated project between the World Rugby Museum, Ali Donnelly, author of Scrumqueens, and Dr Lydia Furse, an expert in the history of the women's game.
