Mansfield Museum Summer Exhibition

Our Local Larder: Mansfield Food Past & Present,

By Pauline Marples

This years [2011] summer exhibition which runs until Saturday 26 November 2011 is already attracting many visitors of all ages.

The displays look at the history of British food and the influence of foreign cuisine on our diet, with plenty of space given to such local specialities as the Gooseberry Pork Pie. It is a really exciting exhibition, there is so much to see and read, with something to interest everyone - take a look at the pictures below, then visit the museum.

Additionally there are lots of activities on offer throughout the summer including making and decorating your own chef’s hat, food tasting and a full-blown Food Fair.
