Balls, Bullets & Boots - Event 1 Oct-11 Nov 2018.

In popular memory, rugby players during the Great War were heroes, athletes turned soldiers, making noble sacrifices for the “greater game” of war as they traded the cheers of spectators for the roar of artillery fire. This interactive, multimedia-based exhibition explores the impact that the harsh reality of war had on colonial sportsmen (and their loved ones) as they were transplanted from the rugby fields of home overseas to fight for the ‘mother country’.

Developed and toured by the NZ Rugby Museum; supported by Horowhenua Historical Society Incorporated; in association with Horowhenua District Council.

FREE entry for under 16 and gold coin donations for adults.
