IF I SHOW YOU MINE! brings together a selection of badges from the huge collection of Neil Bowen aka Badge Geek on display for the very first time. Having grown up in Milton Keynes, Neil has been collecting badges for over 35 years. Many of the badges date back to some of the city's landmark events, such as the campaign for the hospital in 1976 and the opening of The Point in 1985.

Lots of questions that need answers... have you got any?
