From Highfield Road To Wembley Way

A new exhibition in Coventry

Be part of the Herbert's exhibition From Highfield Road to Wembley Way.

It's 1987. The Sky Blues have been playing the game of their lives. Fans cheer, and watch, and hope, and pray…anticipation in the stands is at fever pitch, each breath is felt, each heartbeat heard, every kick of the ball further adding to the unbearable excitement. This football match is one of the greatest Coventry City fans will ever see…

The Herbert's exhibition, From Highfield Road to Wembley Way needs your help. We're asking you to think back to that momentous day in May 1987 and share with us your memories, stories, photos and memorabilia.

Everyone remembers where they were when Tottenham Hotspur's centre back Gary Mabbutt scored an own goal in the 96th minute allowing Coventry to bring the cup back to the city for the first time in their 104 year history.

We are looking for images, videos, written stories and memorabilia to be displayed in the exhibition and used in our press and publicity.

There are a number of ways to donate stories:

email skybluestories@theherbert.org use our flickr site http://www.flickr.com/groups/theherbert. use the Twitter hashtags #FACup87 and #skyblues50 to submit their thoughts.

If you want to donate memorabilia, email skybluestories@theherbert.org and we'll get back in contact with you.

From Highfield Road to Wembley Way, celebrates one of the greatest FA Cup finals of all time and looks at how a football team can unite a whole city.
