Bag I Believe in Miracles Merch at the Tourist Information Centre
The story of Nottingham Forest’s incredible rise to the peak of world football is well known around the world, but a recent film – directed by Jonny Owen – has revived memories of the team’s thrilling achievements once more.
I Believe in Miracles premièred with a star-studded screening at the City Ground, and has since been packing out cinemas across Nottingham – and all around the country. It tells the unlikely story of Brian Clough taking Forest from Division Two mediocrity, to back-to-back European Cup winners – in just five years.
Featuring an infectious feel-good atmosphere, a nostalgic disco soundtrack, and previously unseen footage, the trip down memory lane has been described as ‘the greatest football film ever made’ by Irvine Welsh, the author of Trainspotting – and it’s fair to say the film’s gone down a storm with everyone who’s seen it.
In keeping with the film’s quirky style, a fantastic range of merchandise has been released – perfect for fans of both Forest, and the footballing genius Brian Clough.
The merch is now available to pick up now in Nottingham Tourist Information Centre, which stands just off Old Market Square in the heart of Nottingham.
Choose from mugs featuring fun drawings of Forest heroes like Cloughie, Frank Clark and Colin Barratt, or give one of the great framed prints pride of place on your wall.
The DVD of the film will also be available in-store, soon after its release on the 16th of November, while the accompanying book, which was written by the Guardian’s Daniel Taylor, is out on the 12th, and will also be available.
If, after all that, you’re still struggling to fill a Forest fan’s stocking, why not grab a copy of Forest Fever, which was written by club historian Don Wright to mark the club’s 150th birthday.
The TIC will also be stocking a wide range of Nottingham-themed Christmas presents for the festive season – so whether you need to find some special secret Santa present, or some Miracles merch for the Forest fan in your life, be sure to pop in and say hello this Christmas.
