Events & Exhibitions

Our Museum is a busy place with Exhibitions from our collection, book launches and our annual Airing of the Quilts, plus collaborations with other groups such as Embroiderers.

Our current exhibition is – Team Work – 50 years of Football in Alstonville

Alstonville Soccer Club and the Alstonville Plateau Historical Society have combined to present the 50-year history of Football in Alstonville. At Crawford House Museum you will see the changing uniforms of the Club, multiple trophies its teams have won, notable identities and photographs of its many teams. If you are lucky, you might meet a local football legend!

The exhibition is not just about boys’ and men’s football but also its successful girls’ and women’s teams and reflects the growth of the area from the 1970s. The Alstonville Football Club is the biggest sports club on the Plateau having over 600 members.
