A UNIQUE exhibition charting 100 glorious years of British sporting history has just two weeks left to run at Worcester Cathedral.
British Sporting Heroes Past and Present features 140 exhibits from 10 different sports. Loaned by sports personalities, museums and private collectors, items on show include the Hesketh car driven by Formula 1 world champion James Hunt and Sir Bobby Robson’s international shirts and caps.
Sports fans can also view replicas of the Ashes Urn, Calcutta Cup and Open Championship Claret Jug plus three original Cheltenham Gold Cups.
Among the visitors to the exhibition, which runs until August 30, was Philip Serrell, auctioneer and TV personality. He said: “So many iconic sports trophies in one building is a rare and wonderful thing.”
