Centenary exhibition charts history of education and innovation in Loughborough
An exhibition charting the development of Loughborough University and its predecessor colleges is due to open at Charnwood Museum later this month.
Entitled ‘One hundred years of Education and Innovation’, the exhibition will run from 16 May to 5 July at Charnwood Museum in Granby Street in Loughborough town centre. Produced in conjunction with the Friends of Charnwood Museum, it chronicles the University’s origins from Loughborough Technical Institute through to the leading university of today.
Alongside the historical exhibition there will be a display of the University’s world-renowned research in sports technology, including the science behind the rugby shirts, footballs and trainers used by sports men and women today.
There will also be a mini exhibition on Dr Herbert Schofield, Principal of Loughborough Technical Institute, subsequently Loughborough College, for 35 years.
The exhibition at Charnwood Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm, and on Sundays from 2pm to 5pm. Admission is free.
