bantamsmemories launch

Over the past two years, the lottery funded bantamsmemories project has been recording the stories remembered by people from different generations and backgrounds who have lived in the area around Valley Parade. The product of much work carried out by many volunteers can now be seen on the bantamsmemories website.

A film and visual display have also been produced and these will be exhibited in the bantamspast museum soon. Watch this space!

The Season's First Pre-match Event

The bantamspast museum hosts its first presentation of the season on Saturday. Prior to Bradford City's match against Bristol Rovers, the Bradford Bulls Foundation will be showing films and giving a presentation relating to their Heritage Lottery funded Past Times project which is aiming to capture the social history of Odsal Stadium for future generations.

The ground, which of course was Bradford City's home in the wake of the fire disaster, has a rich heritage and has hosted rugby, speedway, stock cars, equestrian, festivals of sport, girl guide jamborees, football, trotting, dog shows, the Harlem Globetrotters, cattle markets, tennis and many other events.

The event begins at 1.15pm in the bantamspast museum which is located above the Club Shop behind the Kop End of Valley Parade. As with all bantamspast events, admission is completely free.
