Exhibitions at Portland Basin Museum
At Portland Basin Museum we run a fantastic changing programme of exhibitions - so there's always something new to see!
4 March – 9 July
An exhibition celebrating the history of football in Tameside. Tameside has six non-league teams – Ashton United, Curzon Ashton, Droylsden FC, Hyde United, Mossley AFC and Stalybridge Celtic – and was the birthplace of footballing legend Geoff Hurst. Using match programmes, old photographs, football merchandise and fans’ memorabilia, this exhibition captures the excitement of the game on and off the pitch.
1 July to Summer 2017
The commemorative exhibition at Portland Basin, which opened on Friday 1st July, includes historical artefacts from the battle such as an original grave marker and medals awarded to local people, such as John Hallows, who fought in the battle. Further information is also available on the ‘Men Behind the Medals’ website which can be found at http://www.themenbehindthemedals.org.uk/.
