Kick off! Engaging with Scotland's sporting heritage

This event celebrates the exciting range of projects promoting and developing sporting heritage collections across Scotland. Our speakers will uncover the unsung heroes of Scottish sport and show how they can be celebrated in Halls of Fame; highlight the value of business records for sporting heritage; and demonstrate the steps that are being taken to preserve the heritage of a range of sports including gymnastics and roller derbies!
The event will also provide an opportunity for a wider discussion on the challenges and possibilities of developing Scotland's sporting heritage collections with Justine Reilly, Director of Sporting Heritage.
