Maidenhead and the Olympic and Paralympic Games
Now until September 11th
From Lord Desborough organising the 1908 London games almost single handed to Katherine Grainger winning silver and gold medals at successive games, Maidenhead has many connections with the Olympics and Paralympics. Open during the Tokyo Olympics this exhibition includes this torch and other memorabilia from London Olympics in 2012 and 1948, when the British Team were allowed an extra ration of chocolate and the men were given two pairs of free Y-fronts!
