Join us for an evening with former International Rugby Referee Nigel Owens MBE at The Pavilion Suite, Chester Racecourse on Thursday 3rd November at 7pm.

You will enjoy a lovely two-course meal whilst hearing all about the encounters and experiences from throughout Nigel’s 20-year rugby career and personal life, directly from the Nigel himself.

All fans, players, and anyone who knows anything about rugby will know the name, Nigel Owens. Besides having the record for most test matches refereed, he has earned a reputation as one of the top rugby referees around the world.

Born and bred in West Wales he first picked up the referee whistle aged 16 after he was told he wouldn’t make it as a player. Nigel officiated his first international game in 2005 between Ireland and Japan in Osaka and he made his World Cup debut in 2007 in France.

Nigel retired from international rugby in 2020 after becoming the first person to officiate 100 test matches. Undoubtedly, his career highlight was the 2015 World Cup Final between New Zealand and Australia at Twickenham, but he is also the only referee ever to be appointed for three consecutive Heineken Cup finals (2015, 2016 & 2017) as well as refereeing another three in 2008, 2009 & 2012 making it a record six European Cup finals.

Awarded an MBE for services to sport in 2016, Nigel Owens is admired and beloved across the world, and is particularly known for displaying a dry sense of humour and sharp wit when dealing with players. Nigel has won huge plaudits for his Desert Island Discs programme on Radio 4. And in 2017, he presented the Panorama programme on Eating Disorders in Men and Boys.
