From Where I’m Sitting…Walter Tull Calendar

24 October 2017 - 24 October 2017
11:30am & 2pm


Explore the story of Walter Tull; a pioneering player for Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Town who became the British army's first mixed-race officer. These sessions give our younger visitors a chance to dress up and handle objects.

Kick It Out and the National Football Museum have worked together to create a new family trail. This free trail will guide you round some important moments in football history and challenge you to answer questions around equality and inclusion.

Also look out for the HH Prince Hassan Pacha Challenge Trophy on display to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of pioneering black football and athlete Arthur Wharton, who also set the world record for the 100 yard dash in 1886. Athletes still compete for the trophy today!
