Half Term - Bostin' Fittle

16 February - 24 February 2019

Discover the ‘bostin’ fittle’ (‘good food’ in Black Country ‘spake’!) of the Black Country this half term!

From the delicious to the downright disgusting, meet characters who will be cooking up a storm as they tell you all about the foods of the past. Explore an entire village of period shops and houses as you dig into our foodie stories.

Feast your eyes on bizarre cooking utensils; take in the smell of traditional foods being made the old-fashioned way and even sample a few for yourself! There’ll also be plenty to keep little ones entertained too, including street games, competitions and crafts.

Make sure not to miss the street theatre – our historical characters will have you loffin’ out loud! Although make sure to use your loaf when deciding what goes into that yummy-looking bread… food adulteration was alive and well in the Victorian period!

Enjoy the delights of traditional family fun and playtime in the last century, banish boredom with traditional street games including hopscotch and skipping. Take up the challenge to see how long you can keep the hoop rolling in the hoop and stick game and test your skill with a cup and ball and the whip and top.

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.
