Visitors to Rutland County Museum can enjoy looking back at England’s greatest footballing triumph with a brand new exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1966 World Cup.

July 30, 2016 marks exactly 50 years since England defeated West Germany in the 1966 World Cup Final, with a famous 4-2 victory in extra time.

The exhibition entitled 1966 and All That! contains photographs, World Cup memorabilia and souvenirs to bring back memories of that magical summer, and looks at individual heroes such as Bobby Moore and Bobby Charlton.

As well as a focus on football, the atmosphere and spirit of the decade is also captured through music, fashion, film, toys and home décor. It will also look at what life was like in Rutland during the 
era.

Rutland County Museum is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10am to 4pm, and admission is free.
