‘Rugby – A Midlands Story’ is a short documentary film by Iconic Productions charting the heritage of the sport in the region that invented it.
The film features a range of interviews with Moseley Rugby Club, Rugby School, Web Ellis Rugby Museum and official Rugby World Cup host venue Aston Villa FC along with rarely seen moving image archive from MACE and ITV Sport.
This fascinating film not only celebrates the history of rugby but also acts as a legacy document for rugby in the Midlands both in the present day and looking ahead at the future.
The film premiered at the official Rugby World Cup Fan Zone in Birmingham on the 26th September 2015 and was shown 5 times on a 100 sq/ft big screen viewed by over 7000 Rugby fans from around the world.
A shorter version of the film ‘Rugby – The Origins’ screened during the opening ceremony of the World Cup at the birthplace of the game. It is also currently screening 4 times a day to visiting school children at the ‘Rugby Village’.
