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.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
