Paralympic Heritage: stories from Bradford

24 January
Cartwright Hall Art Gallery , Lister Park , Bradford , BD9 4NS

The National Paralympic Heritage Trust is partnering with Cartwright Hall Art Gallery to present this community led exhibition, Paralympic Heritage: Stories from Bradford

The community led exhibition will celebrate disability sport using a range of displays, memorabilia and art.

Visitors will learn about local and national Paralympians, all of whom have contributed to Paralympic heritage.  Come and find out how it all began with the story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann,  a neurosurgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital who revolutionised the treatment and life chances for those with spinal injuries and he organised the first Stoke Mandeville Games to coincide with the start of the London Olympics in 1948.

Admission is free and the exhibition runs from 26 January to the 9 June 2019.
