Tickets for An Evening of Rugby with Clive Woodward go on sale later this week with Hall of Fame Annual Entry Pass holders qualifying for priority booking.

Woodward, the mastermind behind England's Rugby World Cup triumph in 2003, visits the birthplace of the game on Thursday 14 March.

The exclusive event includes an interview with the former England international and coach, followed by a question and answer session with the audience, and a signing session.

Woodward won 21 caps at centre for England and coached the national team for seven years, plotting the path to World Cup glory when Jonny Wilkinson's drop goal gave England a dramatic, extra-time win over Australia in the final in Sydney.

Inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame in 2011, Woodward now works as a television pundit, journalist, business coach and mentor, sharing his wealth of knowledge gained through a life in rugby.

Tickets cost £40 and include canapés and a free drink on arrival. Woodward will receive no fee from the event with all proceeds going to the Hall of Fame's education programme.

World Rugby Hall of Fame Annual Entry Pass holders can buy tickets for the event from 10:00 on Wednesday, 16 January and receive a 15 per cent discount (offer limited to a pair of tickets per pass).

Tickets then go on general sale to the public from 10:00 on Friday, 18 January.

Tickets can be booked online at or at Rugby Visitor Centre on +44 (0)1788 533599.

A limited number of tickets to the event have been reserved for World Rugby Hall of Fame Corporate Pass holders, please email for more details.

Cllr Michael Stokes, leader of Rugby Borough Council, said: "Working with World Rugby, we have organised a busy programme of events at the Hall of Fame leading up to this year's Rugby World Cup in Japan and we're delighted to welcome a guest of Sir Clive's calibre to kick-off the year."

Woodward added: "The World Rugby Hall of Fame acknowledges the greatest of all time in rugby and to be part of the esteemed list of inductees is an absolute honour and privilege for me.

"I look forward to visiting Rugby and taking part in the first of a number of events that are planned at the World Rugby Hall of Fame to celebrate the game we all know so well and love.”

The Hall of Fame, a partnership between Rugby Borough Council, World Rugby and Tudor, celebrates the legends, the history and the spirit of the game through state-of-the-art HD touchscreen technology.

Also housing historic rugby memorabilia, the attraction has brought thousands of visitors and a host of Hall of Fame inductees to the place where the game began.
