HSP is pleased to announce a brand-new document display for summer: Sports of All Sorts. Take a break from the summer heat (or mild weather) and head to HSP to see what’s on display!

The materials on display covers a range of sports, from cricket (yes, cricket is played in America too!) to baseball, from rowing to cycling.

Fitness and fun are evident, but so is the community created. Playing as part of a team gives a sense of identity, of being a part of something bigger. Supporting your local team gives a feeling of connection. The objects and images on display weave this tapestry: of pushing yourself to the limits, of inspiring others, and creating a sense of belonging.

Derby girl or amateur baseball player, armchair fanatic or life-long follower of your local AAA team, come on in!
