Bands FC are back, and this time they’ve partnered up with local print studio, Dorothy to create an even bigger exhibition at BME!
Bands as Football Teams, Football Teams as Bands. Bands FC now have over 400 badges, have exhibited in over 20 locations, are proud sponsors of Brinscall F.C. Juniors boys’ and girls’ teams and continue to help multiple bands and organisations raise a lot of money for charity through the sale of their merch.
Liverpool-based design team Dorothy's signature mix of music, film and literature inspired prints, products and artwork are sold and exhibited internationally. Their work has been described by the press both as 'beautifully clever' and 'terribly wicked'.
This free exhibition will take over our foyer and café, and there is a special launch event to kick things off.
On Friday 10th January, join us for conversation, tunes and freebies. Chris Hawkins, presenter and music pundit at 6Music will be in-conversation with the Bands FC and Dorothy designers talking about music, football and design. There will also be guest DJs in the café bar until 10pm.
There’ll be an opportunity to buy some of the prints from both as well as Bands FC badges and postcards in our Merch Store.
This is a non-ticketed event, just come along on the evening. Please note, there is no access to the museum galleries.
