Pre-order your copy of Warren Gatland’s My Autobiography with us and gain entry to our signing with Warren on Wednesday 20th November.
Warren Gatland is one of the world’s most renowned and intriguing rugby coaches of the modern era, leading Wales to four Six Nations titles, three Grand Slams and a World Cup semi-final, and masterminding two history-making tours as Head Coach of the British and Irish Lions.
As he leaves his post as Head Coach of Wales at the end of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Gatland’s definitive autobiography provides a colourful and vivid chronicle of an extraordinary three decades at rugby’s dynamic coal-face.
The personal journey has been rewarding and challenging in equal measure, spanning many of the sport’s most passionate heartlands such as New Zealand, Ireland, England and Wales.
Gatland reflects in characteristically forthright and intelligent fashion on a lifetime spent playing and coaching the sport which has been his passion since as a young boy he first picked up an oval ball on New Zealand’s North Island, dreaming of joining the ranks of the mighty All Blacks.
Along the way we encounter the greatest matches, players and rivalries the sport has to offer, get introduced to a stunning cast of unforgettable characters who grace the story with their humour and humanity, and emerge with a striking appreciation of how rugby has managed to retain its appeal for millions around the globe.
We will be providing hot drinks and entertainment while you wait so come and join us for what will be a fabulous afternoon for any Welsh rugby fan in Crickhowell.
****Sorry, but this is a strictly ticketed signing event for ‘My Autobiography’, only those with a valid ticket will be able to get their books signed. Warren will not be signing memorabilia on this occasion.****
