The National Paralympic Heritage Trust, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will be exhibiting in Bradford from January until November 2019, starting at Cartwright Hall.

From the 26th January you can visit our accessible and interactive regional exhibition in the beautiful setting of Cartwright Hall and the surrounding Lister Park. Witness just how far we have come as a nation in supporting and celebrating 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 inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and the D-day landings.

We plan to hold special events focusing on schools and families including 'have a go' at disability sports and celebrating personal achievements and diversity.

We welcome involvement from the community and invite local people to share their own memorabilia and stories connected to the Paralympics and disability sport. If you would like to contribute please email us at [email protected].
