The University of Gloucestershire and its professional rugby league side, the All Golds, are hosting their next business breakfast on Monday, 15 February.

Special guests will be former Welsh international dual-code rugby player Iestyn Harris and Luc Morel, General Manager of The Greenway Hotel and Spa.

The breakfast is open to any business in Gloucestershire or further afield and runs from 7am until 9.15am. The breakfast will take place at Fullwood House which is located at the university’s Park campus in Cheltenham.

This breakfast will hold particular significance, as the date coincides with the anniversary of the great match that confirmed Cheltenham as the birthplace of international rugby league. The All Golds are named in honour of the New Zealand All Golds team that clinched rugby league’s first ever international series when they defeated Great Britain on 15 February, 1908 at the Athletic Ground in Cheltenham.

Iestyn Harris is one of the greatest rugby players of his generation. Harris is a former Man of Steel winner and has also represented Wales on numerous occasions at both codes of rugby, winning the Six Nations and playing in the 2003 rugby union World Cup.

Luc Moral headed up Britain’s first dedicated gin bar as Gin Ambassador at The Feathers in Woodstock, where the hotel’s bar stocked over 160 gins from 8 different countries around the world; a collection that afforded them a place in The Guinness World Book of Records.

Tickets cost £10 per person, including breakfast, and can be booked online. Tickets can also be bought over the phone 01242 714468 or by email: allgolds@glos.ac.uk.
