Rugby League Exhibition Tour

About this event

The curators at the museum will guide you through your local teams’ trophy-filled histories and explain how Wigan, Leigh and Tyldesley broke away from the Rugby Football Union in 1895 and formed the Northern Union.

Learn about the early game, the rise of women in the sport, disability rugby, grass roots rugby, the international game and the all-important fans! See original memorabilia never seen before, and more unusual items including the original turnstile from Central Park.

Meet at 1.15pm outside the Wigan Life Centre (swimming pool) for registration.

*Refreshments available at the end
