All To Play For: A sprint through the history of sport, play and competition in Leeds
21 January 2023 - 31 December 2023
Venue Abbey House Museum
All To Play For at Abbey House Museum takes you on a sprint through the history of sport, play and competition in Leeds. Showcasing stories that reflect the dynamic history of play in Leeds, the exhibition also celebrates our instinctive want to compete for trophies.
From giant vegetable growing to roller skating, All To Play For features professional and amateur sports, including some of the lesser known aspects of play that are popular today.
Working with local clubs and players, the exhibition highlights the breadth and diversity of sporting activity in Leeds. It also takes a nostalgic look back at Leeds Children’s Day which was a highlight (or lowlight!) of the year for generations of Leeds schoolchildren.
Keep an eye on our what’s on page for accompanying events and activities throughout the year.
