Journey through a history of food production in Newham. We will start with the tea trade through Newham’s docks, look at the east London factories that produced Newham’s sweets, and end with the impact food has on Newham today.

‘Fast Food-ward’ will be presented by participants from the New Curators Project and is a great opportunity to learn from them about Newham’s trade and manufacturing history.

The New Curators Project is a programme by UCL Special Collections and Newham Heritage Month to give 11 young people in East London the skills and experience necessary to start a career in the cultural heritage sector.

The 2021 New Curators have put together a pop-up banner exhibition that will be touring Newham libraries as part of Newham Heritage Month.
