On Saturday 17th November we participated in the 'Yornight' York Researchers' Night hosted by University of York.
This was a completely free event, no booking neccessary, open to the public.
Here is a photo of us on our stall, which included info about our research, examples of archival materials and ephemera, and some fun activities for all of the family.
We received a great deal of interest in our work on the organisational and business management history of sport, and our research methods.
As well as the soccermadboffins there were many other exciting stalls, displays, demonstrations and public talks from across the university.
Thank you to all who attended.

The key audience for Yornight is the general public with a particular focus on school students, and young people.
The main aims of YorNight are:
- To encourage young people to consider research as a career, and particularly to inspire young girls and women
- To demonstrate how research improves our daily lives in a range of ways, and provides economic and societal benefits
- To show that research is varied and unexpected, and that being a researcher is interesting
- To convey the message to the public that researchers are everywhere, not just in the most obvious places eg laboratories
