Details

As part of Wakefield Museums’ Arts Council England funding, a brand new Museum Hub has opened at Featherstone Rovers Club ground in Featherstone.

The hub offers a flexible space to provide a museum offer in part of the district which is further away from other main museum sites.

The new hub is located in the Featherstone Rovers Club shop and the first display concentrates on the club’s rugby heritage itself, focusing on Rovers’ success stories over their long history. With support and loans from the club and fans, the hub display includes the 1967 Slazenger Torpedo Challenge Cup winning ball, a blazer from the 1952 Challenge Cup final at Wembley as well as a digital display of photographs from the last 100 years.

Future displays will seek to explore many aspects of the town’s history and heritage.
