Everyone is invited to relive the glory days of Nottingham Forest with this celebration of their European Cup wins in 1979 and 1980, in partnership with Nottingham City of Football.

Visitors can enjoy the crucial goals, hear the fans’ stories, explore Nottingham in the Seventies – and listen to the crowd roar.

They will also see players’ shirts, medals and other memorabilia of this astonishing era in Nottingham Forest’s history – visitors can take their photos with Nottingham Forest’s European Cup. There will be free family football activities for all ages, outside the gallery, including goal scoring practice, with Nottingham Forest in the Community,

This event celebrates the national release of I Believe in Miracles, the eagerly awaited documentary film on Nottingham Forest’s history during the Clough and Taylor era – made in Nottingham at Antenna by Director Jonny Owen. A trailer of the film will be shown during this exhibition. Alongside some of the most exciting footage in football, Nottingham Contemporary will be showing film of Nottingham life in the 1970s, including Goose Fair, factories and trades’ unions’ marches. The gallery will also be projecting over 150 fans’ photos of their journeys to watch Forest in the European Cup finals – in Munich and Madrid. The Nottingham Post put out a call to its readers for their own images of this era, and these will be projected at huge scale.

As well as working closely with I Believe in Miracles director, Jonny Owens, Nottingham Contemporary is working in partnership with Nottingham City of Football on City of Miracles: Stories from the Crowd. Nottingham is England’s first City of Football and it has been awarded £1,6m of Lottery funding by Sport England to create new football partnerships, inspire more people to play football more often, and be the fastest growing city for women, girls and black and minority ethnic players. The award was made to a broad partnership of football organisations, businesses, creative industries and community and faith groups, represented by Nottingham City of Football.

“The creativity of Nottingham was a very important part of our winning bid, “ said Nigel Cooke, board member of Nottingham City of Football and Director of One Nottingham. “The event at Nottingham Contemporary brings together a fantastic film made in the City, an interactive exhibition at our international art gallery, and all the many partners in the football community – including Nottingham Forest. This is an era which is inspirational to a younger generation of players. Here they will have an opportunity to relive that era – then practice their own skills with experts.”

Lynn Hanna, Head of Communications and Development at Nottingham Contemporary said: “We are delighted to be working with Nottingham City of Football, the I Believe in Miracles team, and with so many other partners across the city on an event that brings together the City’s sports and creative communities. We all share a passion for giving the next generation the very best opportunities that we can, in the arts, the creative industries, and in sport.

There will be a preview and press opportunity on Friday 18th September at 5 – 6 pm, with I Believe in Miracles director Jonny Owen, members of the European Cup winning Nottingham Forest team and members of Brian Clough’s and Peter Taylor’s families.
