Audio Described Library Event

Sheffield Council logo Sheffield Libraries have asked us to pass on this information: 
Stoppage Time: Sheffield Women’s Football Herstory Exhibition kicks off in the Central Library and the Winter Garden on Wednesday 13th July until Monday 29th August.

The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress will officially open the exhibition on Monday 18th July at 12:00.The Stoppage Time exhibition recognises and celebrates women’s involvement in football in Sheffield and beyond, from the 19th century to the present day.

The magical thing about the exhibition is that the images in the library have been audio described by Rationale Method so that our partially sighted community can access the exhibition.  
Why ‘Stoppage Time’? because in 1921 women were banned from playing on FA affiliated grounds.  

On show, in the lending library, you will see football kits from our visiting teams, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Sweden, along with the England kit.  Local footballers’ trophies, caps, and shirts are also on display. These include the cap and shirt of Jess Clarke of Sheffield United who once played for England. While the focus in the Winter Garden is a timeline of the herstory of women’s football. You can also read about the contribution women from diverse backgrounds in Sheffield have made to the game.

The stories told in the exhibition link up with the stories being told on a much wider scale on the monoliths sited across the city, at the station, Cathedral, and Town Hall.  

This is an exhibition not to be missed so be sure to get down there by 29th August.
