New exhibition to mark the RAF’s centenary

This year’s Royal Air Force centenary is to be marked by the opening of a new exhibition at the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham Stadium.

The exhibition celebrates the sporting careers of the nearly 200 RAF service men and women who have represented their country on the rugby pitch, and will appeal to the many groups connected with both the history of rugby and the RAF. (The photo here shows the 1929 Royal Air Force rugby team at Twickenham Stadium.)

The World Rugby Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am to 5pm (open Mondays during school holidays) and Sunday 11am to 5pm. Museum-only tickets can be purchased on the day from England Rugby Store. The exhibition can also be visited as part of a stadium tour and museum visit.

The exhibition will run until the end of November. Group rates are available for groups of 20+ at a cost of £22.50 per adult ticket.
