NW200 Faces and Places Motorbike Road Race Exhibition

Visitors to this travelling display can expect a rich collection of photographs from local newspaper archives which give a personal insight into the fascinating and thrilling world of motorcycle road racing.

These images, from the Chronicle and Constitution archive, captured in areas such as York Corner and Juniper Hill, are unpublished materials taken during the 1977 – 1987 NW200 races. Spectators, riders, stewards, first aiders and fans are all featured. You may even spot a few familiar faces!

Prize artefacts from the NW200’s early years will also be on show and a themed children’s activity area will keep the little ones entertained. So make sure to pop in and discover a new perspective on one of the most important sporting events in the region.

To find out more about this exciting exhibition, please pick up a Museum Service ‘What’s On’ brochure at one of our Museum venues or contact Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, 24 Main Street, Limavady, BT49 0FJ
