Twickenham to Offer World Rugby Museum as New Event Space
Twickenham Stadium has added to its portfolio of unique spaces with the addition of the World Rugby Museum, which is now available for conferences, banquets and events at the venue. Housed within the South Stand of the stadium, the space presents a tour of world rugby, from its roots in the UK, to its global growth, offering a different tone for events both as a breakout room, reception or for smaller presentations.
Also linking to other spaces within Twickenham Stadium, the World Rugby Museum provides an indoor incentive option that complements the venue's outdoor spaces. Event organisers can also use the museum as part of a wider social itinerary or as an added bonus for delegates to stay on and explore the home of England Rugby with a stadium tour.
Furthermore, the World Rugby Museum has just released exclusive hospitality packages for the upcoming autumn internationals at Twickenham, allowing guests to opt for fully inclusive packages complete with all day access to the museum, an opportunity to rub shoulders with rugby legends, dining pre and post-match and a match ticket.
The World Rugby Museum is the definitive home for everything and anything about rugby. Featuring exhibits from around the world, it represents rugby from different countries and in all its forms, and offers an international feel, as well as one that captures the very best of elite sport.
"We're building a portfolio of conference and event spaces which cater for every aspect of the event; be it pre-event reception, entertainment, the conference itself or an incentive to stay on a while after the meeting," comments Nils Braude, Managing Director, Twickenham Experience Limited. "The World Rugby Museum isn't just about rugby, it's about sport, history, heritage and people coming together, ideal concepts to support a meeting."
"The museum houses the world's most prestigious collection of rugby memorabilia including the Calcutta Cup," says Phil McGowan, Museum Curator. "The collection also features commentary, film and match-footage from the most iconic moments, memorable tours, and greatest players in the history of what is the world's most dramatic team sport."
