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.

With the 54th anniversary approaching, this week’s Sporting Memories session is all about the nation’s most glorious year: 1966. From the build-up around the country, to the drama of the knockouts, right up to the Wembley final itself, our group will be discussing those incredible moments leading up to the lifting of the Jules Rimet.

You can also find more of the stories of ’66 over on our Exhibitions page.
