The National Paralympic Heritage Trust's regional exhibition at Cliffe Castle Museum

Following on from our successful exhibition at Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, we will be opening a new display at Cliffe Castle Museum in June. Visit this accessible and interactive exhibition to 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 our Paralympic legacy. Come and find out how it all began with the inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and the D-day landings.
