Every Object Tells a Story

12 February to 16 September
With contributions from local people this display will explore some of Rugby’s hidden histories using the museum’s social history collection and loans from local people. It will include personal stories and unsolved mysteries.

Some highlights:
  • A Viking ring which was found in Kings Newnham dating from 800-1000
  • A photograph of Rugby cement taken by fashion photographer Norman Parkinson, who later went on to photograph the Beatles, Audrey Hepburn and the Royal Family to name a few.
  • A heraldic stone shield found in a farmer’s field in 2014 which previously adorned Newbold Revel Hall in the 1670s and belonged to the Skipwith Family
  • Rugby Radio Mast activity board dating from the 1920s.
