Join us for an evening of talks and tastings exploring just how the Pershore plum helped win the war. Part of the University of Worcester's Festival of Humanities.


This exhibition and talk explores how life changed for people in one Worcestershire town during the First World War. Pershore residents cultivated and preserved fruit and vegetables to combat wartime food shortages, helped by land girls, Boy Scouts, German POWs and Belgian refugees. There will be samples of WW1 food to try accompanied by mulled wine, including jam made from the famous Pershore plums, a staple food for troops during the conflict.
