Life of Leisure exhibition

From National Library of Wales:

1 October 2011 - 3 March 2012

Do you know in which year the Welsh rugby team beat the All Blacks for the first time? Did you realise that the longest game of chess on record took 20 hours and 15 minutes to complete? TheLife of Leisure exhibition will delve into the history of leisure in Wales and will ask whether the leisure activities of the Welsh over the centuries have defined us a nation?

The exhibition will include collections of iconic photographs, striking holiday posters, paintings, film, music, maps, ephemera and rare manuscripts that contain references to traditional games, hobbies and early forms of entertainment in Wales.
