To celebrate the Rugby World Cup coming to Leicester, we are putting on a temporary exhibition relating to sports history. Not only will the display celebrate the sporting life of DMU and its predecessors, it will also showcase the work of the International Centre for Sports History and Culture. The Centre was established at De Montfort University in 1996 and is today widely acknowledged as the leading centre for the study of sport history in the world, with the foremost historians in the field on its staff.
Here is a sneak preview of the display under preparation. It will be ready to view at the DMU Heritage Centre from the 19th September.
