Cartwright Hall


Visit the accessible and interactive new exhibition in the beautiful setting of Cartwright Hall Art Gallery. Witness just how far we have come as a nation in supporting and celebrating disability sport. Using a range of displays, memorabilia and art, visitors will learn about local and national Paralympians, all of whom have contributed to Paralympic heritage. Come and find out how it all began with the inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and the D-day landings.

We welcome involvement from the community to help create elements of the exhibition, by telling local stories connected to the Paralympics and disability sport. To find out more visit the events page at
