NUFC : For the Love of Football. It’s the final countdown

Next week we will be installing the new temporary exhibition ‘NUFC : for the Love of Football’ at Discovery Museum.  A lot of work goes into preparing temporary exhibitions from lots of different teams in the museum. Over the past few months we have selected the objects that we wanted to include, researched and written text and designed the exhibition space.

We had a great response from the local press who came in and photographed some of the objects – click here to read the Evening Chronicle’s article about the exhibition.

This week I have been working with our conservation team to frame some pieces and to put player’s football shirts on mannequins. All of the materials that we use are conservation standard, which means that they don’t contain anything that can harm the objects.

 The previous exhibition (‘William Armstrong. A spark of Inspiration’) has been taken out of the gallery and the painters have been in. The gallery is looking empty at the moment but by 29th January it will be full of fabulous football memorabilia!
