Ellie Harrison (aka Ch£apSkate), an artist and skater with Glasgow Roller Derby, established the National Museum of Roller Derby (NMRD) during her residency at Glasgow Women’s Library in 2012. The two Northamptonshire roller derby leagues, the Shoetown Slayers and Vendetta Vixens, have helped select the exhibits from the NMRD as well as contributing their own items. Many of the exhibits illustrate the grass roots and creative nature of the sport and the impact it has had on the lives of the skaters.
