Glorious 1911: Selling Well!

Since its Grand Launch at Pictureville last Sunday, copies of Glorious 1911 have been flying off the shelves. There was a great deal of interest at both recent home games and Waterstone's in Bradford have been doing a roaring trade. Possibly as a result of the plummeting temperatures, Glorious 1911 scarves are also proving most popular.
The book is also on sale at Salt's Mill and this weekend at Bradford Industrial Museum's Victorian Christmas Market.
If you can't reach any of those venues for your copy, why not download and complete an order form?
Of course, there are more Glorious 1911 events to come: the Centenary Celebration Dinner at the Midland Hotel on 26 April 2011 and the exhibition at the Industrial Museum, beginning in March. More details coming soon.

A Momentous Weekend

Well, the book is launched and the first copies have been sold. There were a good number of customers in the bantamspast museum along with Glorious 1911 author and the Telegraph & Argus.
The official Pictureville Launch was a resounding success enjoyed by all. Thanks must go to Tony Earnshaw and his staff who could not have been more helpful. Both film and stills looked tremendous when displayed on the big screen.
Above: a tiny snippet from David Pendleton's presentation.

Glorious 1911: On Sale!

There was a great turnout in the bantamspast museum today as Glorious 1911 and Bradford City's Golden Era, 1908-1915 went on sale for the first time. In addition to the subscribers who turned up to collect their books, many others dipped hands into pockets and made a purchase. Author David Pendleton was on hand to sign copies (he'll also be signing at Pictureville). Scarves, badges and programmes for tomorrow evening's Pictureville launch also sold well.
The book also went on sale at Waterstone's in Bradford. The staff did us proud by putting on a great display and also wearing City shirts and Glorious 1911 scarves. We'd be grateful for a picture of that if anybody got one.

Glorious 1911 Launch: Official Press Release

Seven months of celebrations to commemorate the centenary of Bradford City's FA Cup triumph of 1911 begin on Sunday when the book 'Glorious 1911' is officially launched at Bradford's National Media Museum.

Bradford City supporters will have the rare opportunity of seeing action from the 1911 FA Cup Final when the Bantams became the first winners of the Bradford designed FA Cup. The official launch of the book 'Glorious 1911' will take place at Pictureville, National Media Museum, Bradford this Sunday 21 November at 8pm. The book's author, David Pendleton, co-curator of Bradford City's bantamspast museum, will give an illustrated talk on the writing and research of the book as well as the 1910/11 FA Cup winning season when City established themselves among the elite of English football. The talk will feature rare footage of Bradford City's Rugby League predecessors, Manningham, in action at Deswbury in 1901; a tram ride from Forster Square to Manningham Park gates in 1902; Bradford City's first ever Football League home game in 1903; footage of the scoreless draw with Newcastle United in the 1911 FA Cup Final; and the replay at Old Trafford when Jimmy Speirs scored the game's only goal to win the FA Cup for Bradford City. Copies of the book (price £12) will be on sale before and after the event. Additionally a limited number of enamel badges and a special scarf have been made to commemorate the 1911 FA Cup triumph and these will be available at Pictureville along with a specially produced souvenir programme. Tickets for the event are available from the Pictureville booking office, price £6.50 each.

The Pictureville evening marks the first in a number of events that have been organised to celebrate the centenary including a dinner at the Midland Hotel on 26 April, 2011, an exhibition at Bradford Industrial Museum and a visit to the graves of City's fallen heroes in the Great War - including that of Jimmy Speirs who scored the club's winning goal against Newcastle United in the 1911 FA Cup Final replay at Old Trafford.
