Remembering the Past
Between August 2011 and May 2013 the Middlesbrough 86 Partnership, led by Theatre is Real Life, undertook a project with the primary aims of documenting the past twenty five years of Middlesbrough Football Club, beginning with the famous scenario of the club being saved from extinction with 37 Minutes to go.
The project hoped to educate future generations about this period in Middlesbrough’s history and highlight the inextricable link between club and community.
Over 230 days of programmed events were delivered that were attended by more than 69,000 local people. “The Back to the Brink” exhibition at Middlesbrough’s Dorman Museum more than doubled the usual monthly attendances for the museum during its three month display.
This website provides opportunities for the public to access information about the project and the collection of memories gathered until at least August 2016.
