A new football exhibition had its official launch today.
Maidstone: United in Football, which is being hosted at the museum, tells the definitive story of the sport in Kent’s county town.
As well as the most comprehensive history of the football club, exhibits also show the pioneering role the town has had in several different aspects of the game.
Curator and lifelong Stones fan John Bunyard (pictured above with Les Apps) told how he’d been inspired to organise the exhibition after seeing a solitary item about the club in a display case.
The results of his labour of love are on show at Maidstone Museum until Saturday 18 January.
Admission is free, thanks to the generosity of sponsor Gordon Wallis. The exhibition also has the backing of Golding Homes, Gullands Solicitors and iMUSC.
Located on St Faith’s Street, the museum is just a few minutes from the Gallagher Stadium – accessed from Brenchley Gardens, Fremlin Walk or Week Street.
It is open from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday. There is also an opportunity to view on Sundays between 12 and 4pm, up to and including 27 October.
