Gloucester's fourth Festival of Rugby kicks off on the 29th August, in time for the new season, and runs until the 13th September.
To get another year's rugby off to a great start and mark the fact Gloucester will host a game in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the City Museum and Art Gallery is running an exhibition throughout the Festival including memorabilia from the 1991 game.
Organisers are asking for memorabilia from the auspicious occasion on the 8th October 1991 or any other interesting rugby items to be donated for the exhibition.
Festival organisers say there are already some special exhibits lined up for this year's display, but are urging fans to come forward to make sure the exhibition is the best yet.
Paul James, leader of Gloucester City Council said: "In common with the rest of the Festival events, we want to make this year's memorabilia exhibition the biggest and best yet. Exhibits can be related to Gloucester Rugby Club or any other local club - programmes, shirts, letters. Everything will be welcomed and credit given."
Any memorabilia loaned will be catalogued by Museum staff and returned at the end of the two-week exhibition. Admission is free and the museum is open 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
Items for the Festival can be taken directly to the City Museum and Art Gallery. For more information contact Michael Hunt on 01452 396374 or visit www.gloucester.gov.uk/rugby.
