30 September - 01 October 2017

Experience the harvest season in wartime Britain as we transform home-grown fruit and vegetables into thrifty dishes.

Not forgetting our usuals - you can also enjoy a trip 'Into the Thick', experiencing life in a 1850s coal mine, attend a Victorian school lesson and try our famous traditionally cooked Fish & Chips.

Join Volunteers - The Friends of the Museum, as they bring the 1837 Darby Hand Chapel to life when they re-enact a traditional Harvest Festival Service. Please note there is a limited amount of seating and places will need to be pre-booked - find out more about the Harvest Festival Service

See last year's Harvest loaf being made by our Victorian baker on the video below.
