Family event - Wartime food and drink for families
Wed 5 April 2017, 10:30 – 12:00 BST
How do you make ‘Mock Goose’? Why was it illegal to sell fresh bread in wartime? What does bread made from potatoes taste like?
In a jam-packed session of activities, discover how the First and Second World Wars changed the way
families in Britain ate. Explore our collection of documents on food during the wars before following our family fun trail and find out what we’re growing in our brand new wartime allotment.
This session is designed for 7-11 year olds, but older and younger siblings are also welcome.
Adults do not need to book for themselves.
We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
