Deaf-friendly tour - Sugar, Plums & Sherbet

14 November 2020

Join our Deaf Friendly tours facilitated by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. 

Get ready to discover the history of T. Cook Sweet Shop and the role it played within the Community. The business was a typical family set up where everyone had to help with the preparation of sweets.

Come and learn about our obsession with sugar and how the nation’s tooth decay was recognised  as a serious health problem. 

The tour will start in our conference hall with an opportunity to explore the Museum site and even try samples of traditional suck.

The BSL interpreter works alongside one of our friendly costumed demonstrators who will support the tour by spoken interpretation.

Specialist tours take place once a month on a Saturday from 2pm -3.30pm.

Each tour begins with an introductory welcome to the Museum in the main visitor reception at 2pm.
