'Get Foody at Abingdon Museum'
Heritage Open Day: Get foody at Abingdon Museum with a week of events and exhibitions. Take the heritage food trail leading to a 4,000 year old piece of bread! Hear about Grinling Gibbons 'Fruits of the mirror' and why not join the crafting crew for the kids' activity. From 11th to 19th September 2021 we host a special exhibition - Buns at the Museum, a history of throwing buns.
Take the 'Abingdon Trencher' food trail - leading to the 4000 year old 'mummy bread' never before exhibited. See live events and streamed talks...
