‘Food through the Ages event at High House’ 24th June

Meet our costumed characters and learn about food and dining in the Tudor, Stuart, Georgian and Victorian periods. With table displays, demonstrations, a ‘horrible food’ history section, and children’s workshops. You can also enjoy tea and cake in our ‘pop up’ vintage tea room.

It is a unique event that draws on historical sources to show visitors what graced the dining tables of rich and poor throughout the last 500 years. Not only can you see some of the period food – but you get to taste some of it too. Stafford Borough Council has teamed up with Sugnall Walled Gardens’ kitchen to produce a range of food items taken from period recipes.

The event is on Saturday 24th June 2017, from 10am to 4pm, at The Ancient High House, Greengate Street, Stafford, ST16 2JA.

The Ancient High House is the largest surviving Elizabethan timber framed town house in England.
