NUFC. For the love of football

The next exhibition that I am curating at Discovery Museum is all about Newcastle United. I’m working with Mick Edmondson who owns The Backpage, a sporting memorabilia shop in Newcastle. He is a massive Newcastle fan and has an amazing collection of Newcastle United material.

Apparently there was going to be a Newcastle United ice-cream! Unfortunately it was never launched.

Football is a serious business in the North East and I hope the exhibition will show the highs and the lows of NUFC over the years.

The exhibition will be opening on the 29th January 2011.
