READ | Millers launch pop-up exhibition celebrating club’s history

From Friday 1st July until the end of summer, AESSEAL New York Stadium

20 June 2022

Millers fans everywhere are invited to attend Rotherham United’s ‘Ambitious but Brilliant’ exhibition, a new pop-up museum at AESSEAL New York Stadium celebrating the club and its loyal fans.

Running from 1st July until the end of summer, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the history of the club through player artefacts, interactive displays, a bespoke mural and audio stories from fans. There will also be a Junior Millers area, including interactive games, a Minecraft tour of the stadium and a Lego table.

Created by trainee creative producers at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust (RUCST), the exhibition has been designed to honour the team over the years, women in football and Arthur Wharton - the first Black professional footballer who began his career at Rotherham. 

Jamie Noble, Head of Community at Rotherham United, said: “Rotherham United’s history covers hundreds of years and includes thrilling highs, devastating lows, landmark games and ground-breaking players. Over the past hundred years, there have also been dramatic changes for women in football, as well as milestone moments for Black and Asian players.

“The exhibition honours all of these things, as well as the club’s fantastic fans, and has been made possible thanks to the help of many wonderful contributors and young people in Rotherham.

“We’re really proud of our new pop-up museum and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone from avid Millers fans to those who have never previously stepped foot in the town.”

The exhibition is part of a programme celebrating the lead-up to Rotherham becoming the world’s first Children’s Capital of Culture in 2025, which has seen creative venues and organisations in and around the town hosting an increased programme of events and experiences. Alongside the creative events programme, local young people are also being offered life-changing skills development and training in the creative and cultural sectors, funded by the UK Community Renewal Fund.

 

The exhibition will be open to the public at the following times:

Monday – Friday: 10am – 12pm & 4pm – 7pm

Saturday: 10am – 1pm

Sunday: Closed
