A free oral history workshop led by artist Holly Graham, exploring local food-manufacturing heritage, and its impact further-afield.

With a focus on favoured sweet treats, this three-hour session will include recipe-recording, story-telling, and a visit to Peek Freans Museum, which houses a collection of objects that speak of the former Bermondsey-based biscuit factory.

This workshop invites anyone and everyone with an interest in the rich history of international trade and food production in Rotherhithe and Bermondsey, to share Holly’s research and feed into it.
