EXHIBITIONS AT THE VESTEY GALLERY
2014 promises to be an exciting year for exhibitions at the BSAT’s Vestey and Forbes galleries (based in the National Horseracing Museum, Newmarket).
LORD OF THE RINGS
Scenes and characters from boxing’s golden age
As it grew from backstreet brawling to organised sport, boxing developed glamour, rivalries, celebrity supporters and obsessions that would not be out of place in today’s worlds of showbusiness and premier league football. This vibrant collection of contemporary prints gives a flavour of the lives of the people who combined brains and brawn to create and compete in that most ‘noble of arts’.
End March 2013 - End of February 2014
