FWF 2019: Roy of the Rovers Calendar

11 September 2019 - 11 September 2019
6:30pm - 9pm


Celebrate the 65th anniversary of Roy of the Rovers with those who helped shape his incredible career.

Since 1954, Roy Race has lifted cups and titles with Melchester Rovers, been shot by a gunman, saw teammates murdered in a terrorist attack, experienced an earthquake at Mel Park and lost his foot in a helicopter crash (and that's not half of it).

Hear from the writers, publishers and designers who guided his story, relive some of the most memorable and controversial moments in the strip's history, and see the museum's dedicated Roy of the Rovers exhibition in the Pitch Gallery.

Rob Power from current publisher Rebellion will be joined by two men directly involved in Roy's latest comeback - artist Rob Williams and writer Tom Palmer - as well as the legendary Barrie Tomlinson, the founder and long-serving editor of the dedicated Roy of the Rovers comic.

Please note that ticket prices do not include Eventbrite booking fees.
