Event description

Description

Ever wondered what it was like to work with the most extensive collection of football memorabilia in the country?

Join us at the National Football Museum's archive at Deepdale (the home of Preston North End Football Club) for a rare glimpse of life behind the scenes in our collection stores as part of Heritage Open Days 2019.

Visitors will be greeted by one of our team at the archive entrance near the Preston North End office end. Once inside, split in two groups of 10 for each session.

Each group will get a tour of the National Football Museum library, archive and reserve collection in the stores. There, they will discover the resources we hold for research, as well as learning about collections management and care at the museum. Visitors will also get an introduction to research at the National Football Museum with an insightful focus on family history. Participants will be able to handle a selection of original resources from the archive.

Admission is free, but places are limited, so book now to guarantee your spot!
