Join Glasgow Women’s Library and the Audacious Women Festival , meet some of the Auld Reekie Roller Girls and celebrate the launch of this fascinating exhibition.

Discover a fast-and-furious world and see fascinating ephemera, costumes, posters and artwork. Glasgow Women’s Library houses the UK’s first permanent archive for the all-female, full-contact sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby. The archive was originally developed from a project by artist Ellie Harrison and the exhibition curated by members of Glasgow Roller Derby and Auld Reekie Roller Girls. 

There will be a live Roller Derby demo and a free raffle on the night with chance to win tickets to a Roller Derby fixture and an original Museum of Roller Derby project T-shirt designed by Ellie Harrison.

We are delighted to present this in partnership with the Audacious Women Festivalwhich aims to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere.

Tuesday 21st February 6pm-7.30pm
Meadowbank Stadium, London Road, Edinburgh.
