Join food historian Peter Brears as he reveals the contrasting diets of local residents in Georgian and Victorian Leeds.

Food is essential for maintaining life, but its quality, quantity and the ways in which it is prepared and served is largely dependent on income and fashion. Using evidence from Georgian and Victorian Leeds, food historian Peter Brears reveals the contrasting diets of the town's social and occupational groups, from the starvation diets of the poor to the great banquets of the wealthy.

This talk is free, but spaces are limited so booking is essential.
