Last chance to see New Walk Museum's Leicester City Football Club exhibition 'Fearless Foxes'
Visit New Walk Museum and relive the remarkable rise of Leicester City Football Club, from relegation favourites in March 2015 to English Premier League champions in May 2016. This display uses images and sound to recreate what has been a truly unforgettable year in the world of football.
The exhibit is sadly coming to a close on the 23rd October, so this may be the only time to relive the magic of the Premier League Champions, and relish in last year's unbelievable success.
