NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN

THE GREATEST FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT OF ALL
The 1970 World Cup is widely regarded as the greatest ever staged, with more goals per game than any World Cup since, and hosting some of the finest teams ever to compete for the world title. Using brand new interviews alongside painstaking archival research, Andrew Downie charts each stage of the tournament, from the preparations to the final, telling a host of remarkable stories in the players’ own words.

This week you can read an extract from The Greatest Show on Earth where players from the Brazil and England squads recall their titanic group clash, considered by many to be ‘the final before the final’.

AN EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT

ON THE ROAD TO GLASGOW AND THE COP 26

Coat of Hopes is a travelling, community created, work of performance craft.  A patchwork garment made of embroidered pieces of blanket, created by a diverse range of people along a 500 mile walk.

The coat will be made up of around 300 patches, created by groups or individuals along its journey route and beyond. People’s griefs and remembrances connected to their local landscapes and stories of migration, along with their prayers and hopes for the future, will be stitched, appliqued, felted and painted onto pieces of blanket which will be added to the coat as it travels to the Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.  Find out more here.
