NMRD Object of the Month: Five Years book

Established in 2012, the National Museum of Roller Derby (NMRD) is the UK’s first permanent collection of ephemera and memorabilia relating to the sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby. Our ‘Object of the Month’ celebrates objects from our ever expanding collections.

We want your old team shirts, flyers, zines and other paraphernalia to illustrate the remarkable development of the sport in the UK. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for future announcements on how to donate items to the Museum.

Items from the National Museum of Roller Derby featured in an exhibition called Playworld at NN Contemporary Art in Northampton. Curated by skater Rebel Rebel #15, the project worked with the then two Northamptonshire leagues – Shoetown Slayers and Vendetta Vixens – to select items from the museum to display and resulted in a number of items being donated to the museum.
