Harvesting Stories: Food & Stories

Sat 14th December 2013
Library of Birmingham

Between 12-4pm in the Book Rotunda Feng-Ru Lee will be making ‘Secret Dumplings’ and invites you to write a secret on edible paper which will then be made into delicious dumplings for you to eat.

We’re delighted to welcome National Storytelling Laureate Katrice Horsley to perform Spiced Tales of Brum (2-3pm in the Studio Theatre). This hour-long performance will weave together tales, stories and recipes collected at the ‘Harvesting Stories’ workshops that took place in community centres and libraries throughout Birmingham during summer 2013. It’s completely free, you can book in advance at www.birmingham-box.co.uk

From 12-4pm, our food-artist in residence Lizzy Bean will be erecting her Serbian cooking range on the  3rd Floor Terrace – join her for mulled spiced apple juice and some delicious gingerbread for you to decorate (and eat).
