Budge Rogers Book Signing and Lunch

October 07 | 13:00 - 15:00

We were thrilled to hear that Philip Stevens has written a biography of Old Bedfordian "Budge" Rogers OBE, which will be published in the coming weeks called Budge Rogers: A Rugby Life. Budge attended Bedford School between 1949 and 1957 and went on to play rugby at a very high level, representing Bedford, England and the British Lions. He also played for the Barbarians and after hanging up his boots held a number of positions within the RFU.

We are delighted that Budge has taken us up on our invitation and agreed to join us for lunch, at 1pm in the Café Bar on Saturday 7th October, prior to the 1st XV playing Dulwich at home. Budge will say a few words, sign books and happily take some questions.  Please note that Budge is donating all funds raised from the book to the RFU charity for injured players. There will be no cost for the lunch, but we hope that everybody who attends will purchase a book which Budge will be able to sign.

If you are passionate about rugby please join us. To book please contact Bev Marshall at

If you are unable to attend but would like to purchase a book, please download and complete the order form below, return the form and payment to the address shown,  and we will arrange for Budge to sign the book on your behalf.  You can then either collect the book from the Bell Room or we can post it to you (subject to additional postal charges as shown on the booking form).  We look forward to seeing you.
