Join us for an evening with Nigel Owens, one of the most famous referees in World Rugby, as he reveals all about his career in his new autobiography The Final Whistle.
Nigel Owens first picked up the referee whistle aged 16 after he was told he wouldn’t make it as a player. He officiated his first international game in 2005 between Ireland and Japan in Osaka and he made his World Cup debut in 2007 in France. Nigel retired from international rugby in 2020 after becoming the first person to officiate 100 test matches, including the 2015 World Cup Final between New Zealand and Australia at Twickenham. He is also the only referee to be appointed for three consecutive Heineken Cup finals and forever will be renowned and admired for displaying a dry sense of humour and sharp wit when dealing with players during the heat of battle.
With his contract with the Welsh Rugby Union having come to an end in 2020, Nigel is now free to reveal all about his career since his previous autobiography, ‘Half Time’, to speak his mind on various issues and to give the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019.
Open, honest and inspirational, Nigel is one of the most engaging and humorous characters in the game of rugby and a brilliant speaker. We’re thrilled to be hosting this event to celebrate the publication of The Final Whistle – don’t miss this opportunity to see and meet him!
Tickets: £20 (includes a signed copy of The Final Whistle)
