The event will bring together football fans and local people, young and old, at Bruce Castle Museum, situated a stone’s throw away from the famous stadium.
Taking place on Sunday 11th June, the event will commemorate how Tottenham – the place and its famous football club – evolved over the last 150 years: rural backwater, industrial suburb, bastion of tolerance, target for Nazi bombs; haven for immigrants; pioneering football; cup successes; victory parades; glorious European nights; tinderbox for riots; hub for regeneration.
“It will be a touching tribute to both the area and the club,” said Exposure member, Tottenham resident and Spurs fan, Stanley Barell-Kane, aged 15.
The free event will comprise of the following activities and attractions:
- The screening of ‘Memory Lane’ – a feature-length Spurs documentary, by and for the fans, tracing the history of Tottenham, place and club;
- Displays of Tottenham memorabilia, artefacts and old photographs from Bruce Castle Museum’s archive;
- Spurs related music and dance, with a specially choreographed routine performed by pupils from local primary schools supported by performing arts group Streetz Ahead;
- Arts and crafts activities for children with Tottenham related themes;
- Food prepared by the local San Marco restaurant;
- Speeches by local young people about what Tottenham means to them;
- Navy blue and white balloons, banners, bunting and decorations.
Exposure is pleased to have Tottenham Community Press as sponsors.
The funding support from Tottenham Grammar School Foundation is particularly apt given that, in 1882, pupils from the school founded Hotspur FC, subsequently Tottenham Hotspur FC.
Memory Lane takes place on Sunday 11 June 2017, between 1pm and 5pm at Bruce Castle Museum, Lordship Lane, London N17 8NU.
