Sports Heritage Symposium
20th September 2012
National Football Museum, Manchester.
This event aims to bring together all those with an interest in sports heritage. It will address key questions including:
• How can we best interpret sports history in both specialist sports museums and the wider museums and heritage sector?
• How can museums and archives work in partnership with sports clubs to preserve their history?
• How can those engaged in sports heritage best work in partnership?
• What role can communities play in interpreting their sports heritage?
Delegates will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the new National Football Museum.
