This week the National Football Museum hosted its annual Hall of Fame induction, which sees the game’s greats honoured a the ceremony and without a doubt it’s one of the museums highlights of the year.
The festivities saw Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Norman Hunter, Alan Mullery and Gary Davies each pick up awards for their service to football; with the Grandson of Blackburn Legend Bob Crompton, also called Bob Crompton, collecting the award on his behalf.
The ceremony was held in the Hall of Fame area, which doubles as the museums’ entrance hall. This diverse space was transformed into a formal dining area with a stage fit for the stars gracing it. At Mather & Co. we can’t emphasise enough the importance of a venue’s entrance. Not only does it set the scene, it dictates the atmosphere for the experience ahead as soon as visitors set foot through the door.
The museum entrance was purposefully designed to be as versatile as possible – you never know when the venue will transform from football museum to a red carpet for the stars. Moveable units allow the space to be opened up and an impressive LED curtain provides sponsorship opportunities for any event.
An impressive museum entrance also sets the standards for what else is to come and National Football Museum does not disappoint in that respect. From the trophy collections to the interactive penalty shootout, we put our own unique style into this national treasure.
Congratulations to all those involved, we can’t wait to see who makes next year’s shortlist.
