Motherhood in Advertising – Sunday Talk

Take mum for a sophisticated treat this Mother’s Day.

Come and enjoy a 40-minute talk on the history of Mother’s Day and how mums have been portrayed in advertising and media. Whether playing family games in Edwardian times, gathering around the 1920s radio, or promoting everything from biscuits to cleaning products.

Inevitably, women’s liberation forms a part this narrative – from suffragettes to wartime factories, the DIY revolution to kitchen convenience.

The Museum is the place to be, not only to appreciate the role of mothers, but to reminisce in the Time Tunnel. Sharing family memories together triggered by brands such as Spangles, Kelloggs Country Store, Lego, Jacky and many more.

Sunday 31 March 2019 at 2pm.

Tickets to attend the talk cost £14 for adults and £11 concession, plus booking fee.

Tickets include admission.
