Food Fest is a series of talks, exhibitions and activities exploring the hopes and fears of the past through food. In times of conflict, fear and anxiety, saw a frequent focus on shortages and costs of food, whilst hopes for the future are articulated in feasts celebrating family, community, peace and of course Christmas.
The events are being held at a range of locations including Avoncroft Building Museum, Croome Park, St Swithun’s Church, the Courtyard and the Hive. They make up the University of Worcester’s contribution to the Being Human Festival, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities, taking place 17–25 November. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
