Showcasing The Road To Hampden

Our ‘Road to Hampden’ exhibition, delivered in partnership with The Howgate Shopping Centre, documented Falkirk FC’s past four appearances at Scotland’s showcase football Cup Final in 1913, 1957, 1997 and 2009. It also showcased the run up to the 2015 Cup Final.

Designed and produced by Eden from inception to installation in only six days, The Road To Hampden exhibition proved to be hugely popular, welcoming thousands of supporters and interested shoppers along with camera crews from three national news channels. Our related #howgateCOYB social media campaign for the exhibition also added to the amazing online buzz all around Falkirk as the club finalised preparations for the 2015 Cup Final.

It’s been fantastic working with The Howgate to bring the displays to life. We are grateful to our other co-sponsor Falkirk Delivers and to everyone who has played a part in making the exhibition such a success – particularly to Michael White for his Falkirk FC memorabilia and historical expertise. Photography and background imagery for the exhibition was provided by a wide range of contributors including Gordon Whyte, Gordon MacFarlane, Falkirk Herald, Richard Parker, Jeff Holmes, Falkirk Library and Falkirk Community Trust Archives. The exhibition cases used to display Michael White’s memorabilia were kindly loaned to us by Falkirk Community Trust and the Alex Totten 1997 cut-out was kindly donated by Behind The Wall.

Over six hundred individual visitors book comments and best wishes to Falkirk F.C. were collected at the exhibition and can be viewed here.

The final whistle blew for the exhibition on Sunday the 31st of May. Check out our Storify of the event here.
