Dudley Archives Exhibition


From Black Country Boy to Red Devil

Dudley Council are supporting the Duncan Edwards Tribute and we will be working with Richard Lewis (Senior Archivist) to curate an Exhibition at Dudley Archives and Local History Centre for three months from January to March 2018 as part of our programme of events and activities.

Duncan Edwards came from a working class background in the heart of the industrial Black Country to play for Manchester United and represent England as an international player at every level of professional football.

This Exhibition will tell his story – from Black Country Boy to Red Devil

Included in the exhibition will be posters, artwork, photographs, artefacts, ephemera, football programmes, magazines, memorabilia, press cuttings and personal correspondence relating the life and career of Duncan Edwards.

We have also commissioned football artist – Bob Bond – to create four original story boards illustrating periods of Duncan’s life and these will be used as Wall Hangings in the Exhibition.

 

The Duncan Edwards Exhibition will be open until Wednesday 28 March 2018 –Entry is Free
