Bantams Community Programme

For obvious reasons, there's not too much activity going on in the bantamspast museum at the moment. Later in the close season we plan to spice up the displays and add one or two large images although, as everywhere else, money is tight.
Meanwhile, the Bantams Community Project continues to meet. This is a joint committee, made up of all the bodies that use the space above the shop. It's current main aim is to see that the space is well used, thus generating revenue that will keep it running over the long term. We still await news of funding for our bantamsmemories project. We should hear very soon.

May 11 1985

Twenty four long years have passed yet the memory is as fresh and raw as yesterday.
Today especially, we take time to remember the 56 fans who perished, their families and friends and all others who were affected by this terrible tragedy.

Manningham Community Fun Day

This annual event will be taking place this Sunday, May 3rd at Valley Parade. Representatives from bantamspast will be in the museum showing DVDs on our recently installed ceiling mounted projector and telling people all about the little gems we have on display.
There'll be a lot of other stuff going on throughout the stadium complex, including junior football competitions, stalls and activities, culminating in a Manningham All-Stars v Thackley football match in the afternoon.
Admission is free and everyone's welcome.
