M Shed in Bristol are in the final stages of planning their big summer exhibition. It’s a look at how sport has been an integral part of the social fabric of Bristol over the past 200 years and eschews the mainstream or bigger clubs in favour of more esoteric pursuits.
Over the past two months or so I have been collating and harrying and chasing club members to try and get bits and pieces together for the exhibition. BSCC have a rich history and it’s amazing how many things came out of the woodwork. In the end we were spoiled for choice and many of the things didn’t make the final cut. Nevertheless, i dropped off some lovely shiny things today and I am very much looking forward to seeing the wider perspective and the sporting narratives of people within the city.
