Food History and Medieval Castles!

GROW logo

We are so excited to announce our two new courses.

We are running two new courses here in Heckington in July. The first, Mediaeval Castles & Great Houses, will be a 12 hour course, over 2 days, initially discussing the definition of what a castle is (and isn’t!), and then looking at the architectural development of castles, great houses and palaces. The tutor, James Wright, will then look at landscapes of lordship castle builders, and household staff in castle life.

Food through the ages is only 6 hours long but should be an interesting and fun day as tutor, Sadie Hirst, looks at food history from the Neolithic, Roman, Medieval and Tudor Periods. There will be a rare opportunity to view antiquarian cookbooks and handle pots and pans material culture from Sadie’s own personal collection. After lunch you will learn about Food of the British Army and Homefront during WW1, followed by a creative and fun afternoon recreating historic recipes for you to make and then cook at home. Places on this course are particularly limited due to its practical nature.

Booking is essential.

For an enrolment form please email or telephone 01529 461499.

This lifelong learning course is part of the Grow programme organised by the Lincolnshire County Council Community Learning service. We aim to attract new learners and courses are open to all aged 19 and over on 31 August 2018. Courses may have a cost involved.
