GUEST BLOG: Outdoor entertainment

By guest blogger VICTORIA GRANT

Family visitors were treated to some seasonal cookery demonstrations at the Manchester Museum’s Allotment on Saturday 22 September, which marked Harvest Festival Big Saturday. 

As people gathered at the allotment, some of them drawn in by the delicious smells, they got some top tips from Cracking Good Food’s Kim Irwin and helped make - and eat! - a curry that tickled the tastebuds. Cracking Good Food also encouraged the visitors to swap recipes with each other.

Also at the event were the Northern Fruit Group, RSPB, Wildlife Trust, British Science Association and Grey to Green. As well as perfecting their culinary skills, family visitors could have a go and making clay fruits and vegetables and using these to craft fruit and vegetable mobiles. There were also composting demonstrations.

The next Big Saturday at The Manchester Museum will be Dogs on Show on Saturday 13 October. Click here for more details.
