There was a chance to get sticky taste of Victorian Bury St edmunds at Moyse’s Hall Museum on Tuesday.

As part of the museum’s Pot Luck Victorian exhibition, visitors could make liquorice sweets, which were popular then. Heritage officer Alex McWhirter is seen here showing Ryan and Logan Webb and Laura Hunn the process.

The exhibition is the latest in the museum’s Pot Luck series where visitors pick a ‘card’ to get the name of a Bury person connected with an exhibit to find. For example, you can see a gun made by John Scotcher, whose shop is now Mr Shoes.

Alex said “We have opened up the Great Hall for a temporray exhibition shows a lot of the collection that hasn’t been out for a while.”

There will be another history workshop next Tuesday.
