Heritage Collection

The Norman Clare Billiard and Snooker Heritage Collection at Thurston, St Anne Street, Liverpool, is probably the largest collection of billiards and snooker memorabilia in the world.



The name of Thurston has been synonymous with the sport of Billiards and its successor Snooker since 1799 and our founder, John Thurston, is considered by many to be the father of the modern game.

At Thurston, we are proud of our long association with the game of snooker, including the royal warrants we have attained, and the medals won at various expositions. The nature of the snooker business has changed over the years alongside the demands of our customers, and we now offer a wide range of non-snooker related products, all of which you will find on our site.

Here at Thurston we have built our reputation on first class customer service and we endeavour to depatch all of our online products for next day delivery. For those that take a bit longer, the lead times are indicated on the product information page.
