Sporting Memories: Hidden History talk Calendar

17 February 2020 - 17 February 2020
10.30am - 12.00pm

Want to learn more about the hidden history of the women's game?

Join National Football Museum curator Belinda Scarlett for a fascinating look at the history and development of women's football. Learn more about great players and teams, the challenges they faced and the progression of the game in spite of the 1921 'ban' in our insightful talk spanning over a century of football history.

There will also be the opportunity to see the museum's latest Goal Click exhibition, charting a seminal year for women's football through photographs taken by the players themselves.

The Sporting Memories Network have regular get-togethers around the country, using sport as a way to help people meet others, talk about their experiences and make new friends. The National Football Museum sessions have been a hit with visitors, with a second afternoon group launching by popular demand.

Two groups meet fortnightly at the museum on Mondays and Wednesdays, with meetings held from 10.30am to 12pm.

This talk is free, and refreshments will be provided.
