Lampeter – The Birthplace of Welsh Rugby

University of Wales Trinity Saint David Rugby, The University is preparing to celebrate the 2015-2016 season as the 150th anniversary since the Rev. Professor Rowland Williams – a former Vice Principal of St David’s College, Lampeter – introduced rugby to Wales. It’s very fitting that the 150th anniversary falls on the same season as the 2015 Rugby World Cup tournament.

During the season the University will be hosting a series of events to celebrate Lampeter as the birthplace of rugby in Wales. The University’s forthcoming celebrations have gained the full support of the WRU and will include a rugby focused Founders Day event, a printed booklet to document the origin of Welsh rugby in Lampeter, an exhibition of rugby artefacts to be displayed in the Roderic Bowen Library and a permanent commemorative sculpture carved form the stone of the old Canterbury building to be situated on the Campus. Celebrations will culminate with a showcase rugby match and dinner in March 2016.

As part of the 2015 Rugby World Cup trophy tour UWTSD welcomed the Webb Ellis Cup to Lampeter.
