Pop-Up Museum

It gives us great pleasure to announce that the Hamlet Historian will be setting up a Pop-Up Museum in the club boardroom for the afternoon of Saturday 7 May 2016 from 2:00pm until 5:30pm.

At 3 o’clock the same day a Dulwich Hamlet XI will play a match against the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters Team.  I have played in a couple of these matches myself, the first of which was my debut for the Supporters Team over twenty years ago. I will never forget the game because I had to mark my hero Frank Murphy in the first half and Player of the Year Gary Hewitt in the second half! So put a note in your diary to come along and support this event, and others over the same weekend. Details can be found at the Dulwich Hamlet website.

The Dulwich Hamlet FC boardroom is almost a museum in itself anyway, and the club have graciously allowed us to use it for a couple of hours. If you have not been in there before it will be well worth taking this opportunity. Feel free to come along and say hello and check out some of the exhibits and memorabilia that we hold.

Among the items on display will be one of the legendary EdgarKail’s amateur England caps, Ernie Toser’s Dulwich Hamlet shirt from 1937 FA Amateur Cup Final, and one of his two winner’s medals. The Ernie Toser shirt, which he kept in a drawer for decades, was the prototype for the popular TOFFS retro shirt.

If you have any Hamlet related paraphernalia that you would like to bring along to show us, we would be more than pleased to see you.
