An original turnstile,  a floodlight and the original stadium clock. These are just a few of the legendary items that have had a part in the history of Vicarage Road Stadium, home to Watford FC.   They all form part of a fantastic football exhibition from August 6 until 24th September at Watford Museum which will showcase a host of artefacts that the 100 Years at the Vic project has collated.

The Hornets, or The Brewers as they were nicknamed then, played their first game at Vicarage Road on Wednesday, August 30, 1922, and the ‘100 Years at the Vic’ exhibition will be the first major event to mark the centenary.   It will appeal to Hornets fans and any visitor to Watford, especially those interested in football.

The exhibition will feature objects that should capture the imagination of Watford fans of all ages. From the bricks when the Vicarage Road terrace to a sign from the Watford Stadium halt station, lettering from the Watford Observer clock and late Watford Observer cartoonist Terry Challis’ original allegorical painting featuring Sir Elton John that forecast the Hornets’ meteoric rise up the football ladder.
