Local History Day: King’s Lynn Fish and Chips Heroes Exhibition
May 25 @ 10:00 am

Join us for our Local History Day exhibition on the 25th May featuring  our nominated King’s Lynn’s local history heroes: The Chippes!

Find out all about the intriguing history of fish and chips, how the trade rapidly caught on in King’s Lynn during the late 19th century and how King’s Lynn outstripped all other towns and cities to be the number one hotspot for fish and chips in Norfolk!

Read about some of the local fish and chip vendors, hear an original account of visiting a shop in the 1920’s, and see some examples of original frying ranges. We also have some fish and chip shop tales and pictures sent in by the local community that make well jog a few memories.

It’s a fun and thought-provoking exhibition about how something that we now consider to be an every day source of fast food actually provided a vital source of nutrition during the wars, enabled women to run their own businesses and had a lasting social impact.

Free with standard admission.
