Sporting Memories

Sporting Memories enables older sports fans (50+) to meet and reflect on the beautiful game.

The group usually meets at the museum on Monday and Wednesday mornings. It involves themed discussions where everyone has the opportunity to listen to and share memories about amazing players, great games or match-going-anecdotes.

With the museum currently closed, our Sporting Memories groups are continuing to meet virtually (using Zoom) every Wednesday from 10.30am-noon.
