Join us in the Hearts Museum on National Sporting Heritage Day

19 September 2023

National Sporting Heritage Day takes place on Saturday 30th September and the Hearts Museum will be offering up some free activities for kids and adults so pop in and celebrate this year’s theme with us – Community in Sport!

With plans to celebrate and highlight 150 years of Hearts next year, we’ll kick off by exploring how Tynecastle Park has changed over the years, alongside our local community of Gorgie and Dalry. We’d love you to come along and share your memories with us.

Do you live close by? Have any old pictures you think we’d like to see? Bring them in! Your input will be invaluable to help us shape our Maroon Mile Project. Budding young artists will have the opportunity to design a poster for the Maroon Mile – you can draw Tynecastle, or anything else you love about hearts and the local community, our favourites will be shared on the Hearts website for everyone to admire!

And finally, our curator will be running some object handling sessions, with the unique chance to see some of our collection which is not normally on display. Don’t miss out!

We want to hear your memories about Hearts FC and the surrounding area. What has been the biggest change in the area over the years? What is your favourite object in our collection?

Celebrate community in sport with us on National Sporting Heritage Day at the Hearts Museum, from 11am – 3pm on Saturday 30th September.
