This May half term, from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June, Ironbridge Valley of Invention is offering a jam-packed menu of events and activities inspired by the theme of food.

Tantalising Taste, Enginuity

At this extra-special workshop, kids will explore how we use the five senses to detect flavours – from the yummiest to the yuckiest! Once children have got their tongues around different flavours they will work together to make yummy sherbet sweets.

Event in collaboration with Fizz Pop Science. This event is suitable for mini scientists aged 5-11. Additional charge of £3 on top of Enginuity ticket price, £1 for PASS PLUS holders. One-hour workshops begin at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Spaces are limited and must be booked.

Victorian Food Week, Blists Hill Victorian Town

At Blists Hill Victorian Town, visitors will get an insight into what the Victorians ate. They will be able to watch a special cooking demonstration in which the indomitable Mrs Clack will teach Constable Jarrett how to cook for himself. They will also have the chance to join the town’s residents in making traditional sweet treats.

In the museum’s catering outlets, hungry visitors will have the chance to try classic Victorian dishes that they won’t find elsewhere.

Additional charges apply.

All materials will be provided. Suitable for all ages from 2+. £3 per person on top of Jackfield Tile Museum ticket price, £1 for PASS PLUS holders. All day.
