Wolves’ Championship title triumph and spectacular open top bus parade is to be celebrated in a free exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
It will open on Saturday, August 4 and will showcase a selection of photographs from the club’s city parade and party in West Park that excited more than 80,000 proud fans on May 7.
Images, interviews and a short film, provided by City of Wolverhampton Council, Signal 107, Express and Star, and Wolves offer a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the planning, preparation and celebration of the club’s title-winning success.
Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said:
May 7 saw pride in Wolverhampton come alive when the open top bus paraded through the city. I encourage everyone to come and see what a great day it was and if you were there on the day come and see if you can find yourself in one of the photos.”
The new display will also feature historic artefacts relating to the club, including pin badges, programmes, souvenirs, memorabilia and archive photographs.
To support the exhibition there will be a range of family activities planned at the Lichfield Street gallery and in Wolfies Den at Molineux on matchdays.
The exhibition will run until Sunday, October 28, 2018, and can be seen during the normal gallery opening hours of Mondays to Saturdays (10.30am-4.30pm) and Sundays (11am–4pm).
