Legendary Welsh rugby player Shane Williams takes to The Courtyard stage next week to share secrets of his illustrious career in what promises to be an intimate and revealing evening.

Shane Williams was a Welsh Rugby Union player most famous for his long and successful tenure as a wing for the Ospreys and the Wales national team. In 2008, he was selected as the World Rugby Player of the Year and since his retirement from international rugby in 2012, he has worked as a presenter on S4C and as a pundit on BBC, ITV and Channel 4. He was also inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame in 2016.

Swansea-born Shane picked up his first rugby ball in primary school but, having been told he was ‘too small to play rugby’, instead took up football and considered it his ‘main sport’ throughout secondary school, going on to start his junior rugby career as a scrum-half at Amman United.

An Evening with Shane Williams is an opportunity for rugby fans to get up close and personal with Shane, as he lifts the lid on life on and off the pitch.

An Evening with Shane Williams will be at The Courtyard on Tuesday, January 28 at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 01432 340555 or visit courtyard.org.uk
