Blue Potatoes and Invasion Fears

November 20, 11:00 am - 8:00 pm

Throughout the day there will be drop-in activities in The Hive Studio giving you a chance to listen to oral histories, view archive film, answer quizzes, examine extracts from Worcestershire wartime newspapers, take a look at the weekly ration allowance and taste wartime foods such as carrot jam.

In the evening, enjoy a talk (starting at 18:30) about some of the secret invasion fears that haunted Worcestershire during the Second World War, and discover some of the weird and wonderful food people ate to eke out their rations.
