Three Days… a Queen, a Prince and a 'King'
Display commemorating Muhammad Ali's visit to South Shields in 1977
Until 16 December 2017 (historic exhibition)
A display celebrating 40 years since World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali visited South Shields, featuring images and objects from his visit.
The display also marks The Queen and Prince Philip’s visit to South Tyneside the same month during the Silver Jubilee celebration tour.
On 2 November we took a life size image of Ali around South Shields retracing the route he took.
We used his quotes as prompts to ask people questions about life - South Shields, their dreams, masculinity and identity. You can hear what the people of South Shields said here.
