Ulster's Sporting Heroes

Ulster Sports Museum

 
“… visitors could leave feedback on which sportsperson or sport they’d like to see included in an Ulster Sports Museum…”
 

The Ulster Sports Museum Association are the driving force behind the campaign to tell the story of Ulster’s top sportsmen and sportswomen. 

The exhibition tour started in the east entrance of Belfast City Hall, and because the foyer space contains many entrances and pillars, we chose the modular mila-wall system for the exhibition walls.

The lightweight nature of the module walls allowed for the exhibition to be split into smaller sections, each to be transported or displayed separately as and when the Association required.

 

The exhibition was divided into key sports sections with an additional 'Telling Your Stories'  section, where visitors could leave feedback on which sportsperson or sport they’d like to see included in an Ulster Sports Museum, or to comment on a memorable sporting occasion. 

LCD screens and digiframes of varying sizes were fitted to the exhibition walls, affording the opportunity to have screens dedicated to each particular section.

We worked closely with the Ulster Sports Museum Association to define the key artefacts and memorabilia to go on display alongside the exhibition panels. These ranged from trophies and caps, to George Best’s shirt and boots, Dawson Stelfox’s Everest climbing suit and the bronze bust of Dame Mary Peters.

Due to the significant monetary and sentimental value of some of the artefacts, we produced plinths of various sizes, featuring display cases, with all cases locking together for extra security.
