Food Glorious Food at Weston Park

A new exhibition, Food Glorious Food, starts 20th March and runs until 28th November at Weston Park Museum.

From grow your own to celebrity chefs, school dinners to Sunday roasts – a new family exhibition curated by Museums Sheffield will look at food’s place at the heart of British culture.

Exploring the world of our relationship with all things edible, Food Glorious Food is a family-friendly exhibition which tells the stories that lie behind what we choose to eat. Exploring the journey from field to fork, Food Glorious Food will draw from Museums Sheffield’s collections of Social History, Visual Art and Decorative Art as well as loans from the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Budding cooks of all ages will enjoy our eclectic displays of labour saving gadgets, historic culinary devices and unusual recipes, before delving into our larder, stocked with interesting food stories and nostalgic packaging. Little green fingers will be kept busy in our vegetable patch play area, while our special ‘food phones’ will allow visitors to listen to and share their own food likes, dislikes and memories.

Open Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday 11am – 5pm, this show is free to enter.

Curator’s Tour is on Thursday 29th April, 1–1.45pm when Curator of Social History Clara Morgan explains the stories behind the wonderful culinary objects in Food Glorious Food. This event is also free, and no need to book.
