Last exhibition for the fabulous 15



Photos by Jamie Gray


The Rugbeards – A photographic exhibition promoting beards, flowers and Rugby Town locations – is back on display. Originally exhibited throughout the Rugby World Cup celebrations of 2015 in Regent Street flower shop Garden Gate Flowers, the new display are currently hanging on the walls of Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, above the library. Located on the 2nd floor, just outside the main gallery room, the 15 bearded men are once again raising money for local charity Hope 4 and also The Matt Hampson Foundation.


The project was the brainchild of Sue and Simon Ainley from Garden Gate Flowers. They enticed local barber Matt Robinson on board to supply the bearded men, and local photographer Jamie Gray was drafted in to photograph them. Over the course of a few evenings, taking pictures of the flowered-up hairy chaps in various town locations, Rugbeards was ready for the wall.

One Vision Imaging printed and framed the photos for free. All to help raise as much money for the two charities.

Please visit and also give generously for the causes. On from January 18th until February 27th.
