Football Forever! exhibition at Wrexham Museum

Bardd Plant Cymru Gruffudd Owen is at Wrexham Museum this week running creative writing workshops with local primary schools on the theme of football.

The workshops have been organised in partnership between Literature Wales and Wrexham County Borough Museum & Archives to coincide with the Football Forever! exhibition, which runs at the museum until January 2020 and includes objects and archival material from the Welsh Football Collection.

The exhibition highlights the eventful history of Welsh football through its links to the First World War, the Aberfan Colliery Disaster, the challenges of foreign travel, the 1924 Paris Olympics, the rise of feminism, disability and sport, the importance of a single street in Swansea and the sport’s origins in the town of Wrexham and the village of Ruabon.
