Who's it for?
For Take That fans of the first hour  this exhibition will bring back those happy memories of handcrafted letters and creatively decorated FBs, of the excitement of opening the letter box every day hoping for a package full of Take That-related goodies from pen pals around the world, of waiting outside Take That's hotel to obtain offstage photographs to swap for pictures taken by pen friends in Italy, Holland, Germany or the UK, of trips to Manchester to visit Take That-related sites and maybe run into the boys.

For new Take That fans it will provide an insight into the networks of fellow fans in the early days of Take That. You will get to see plenty of incredible, never-before-seen Take That snapshots taken by fans in the 90s. We might even do a poll on your favourite ones!

Not least this exhibition will be a treat for any member of the public with an interest in popular culture, folk art, media history, fan cultures, communication studies, popular music, the 90s and boy bands, allowing you a peek into a subculture you didn't know existed.
