Shrewsbury Event

Mrs Beeston's Christmas with Dr Annie Gray

Mrs Beeston's Christmas with Dr Annie Gray in Shrewsbury

Food historian and TV and radio presenter Dr Annie Gray will be giving a festive- themed talk looking at Christmas in mid-Victorian times through the eyes of Isabella Beeton. Published in 1861, Beeton's Household Management book contains a number of Christmas recipes. The talk will reflect the mid- Victorian turmoil over what Christmas meant: was it an excuse for drunken revelry or was it an occasion to celebrate with family and friends and to remember those less fortunate than the middle classes to whom Beeton addressed her writting? Tickets must be pre booked as places are limited!
