This year’s Heritage Open Days’ theme was ‘Edible England’ and the museum celebrated with a new exhibit within the trader’s exhibition area, exploring the town’s culinary heritage and culture. The exhibition was so popular that we have extended the display to the 4th December 2021, with a Christmas window refresh in November.
Displays include old kitchen utensils such as butter pats and various moulds, and some familiar cooking devices that are still in use today.
The museum will also be sharing tips from wartime cookbooks and traditional Northamptonshire recipes!
Visitors can view the display from 10th to 18th September, Tuesday to Friday from 9.30am to 1.30pm and on Saturday 18th September from 10am to 2pm.
