Are you a Tigers fan with memories, photos, films and memorabilia of the annual Barbarians game? Did you go to the game every year with your family? Or work at Welford Road when it was played?
We need your help!
We are creating a digital time capsule of the Tigers vs Barbarians games and want to gather as many recollections and materials as possible. Come along to our workshops, where you can:
Explore the history of the Baa Baas game with other Tigers fans
See historical photos from the Leicester Mercury archive and help enrich them with stories and information
Bring your photos, films and memorabilia to be recorded, digitised and added to the time capsule
We are running three casual drop-in workshops – pop into whichever one you can make for however long you can stay.
Date: Tuesday 18th March 2014
Times: 12pm – 2pm; 4pm – 6pm; 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Location: Soft Touch Arts Centre, 50 New Walk, Leicester LE1 6TF
Refreshments will be provided.
If you have your own personal collection of photos, films or memorabilia about the Baa Baas, do bring it along to share.
If you have any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pilot project has been delivered through the Collaborative Arts Triple Helix Project, a research project by the University of Birmingham in partnership with University of Leicester. The Collaborative Arts Triple Helix Project has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as pat of their Creative Economy Knowledge Exchange programme.
