‘What we eat at home’ exhibition…

A new exhibition at Charnwood Museum in Loughborough is exploring how cooking and eating at home has changed from prehistory to the present day. Among the items on display are a large number of kitchen gadgets and a 1950s kitchen which, according to a recent item in the Leicester Mercury, ‘has caused a few gasps from our younger visitors – they can’t believe people never used to have fridges’.

The exhibition runs until 25 March 2012. For further information, telephone 01509 233754 or visit the museum website at www.leics.gov.uk/charnwoodmuseum.
