Food Stories

Our food could tell us a tale or two - about the places where it is grown, the people who rely on it for their livelihood, how it's processed, packaged and transported to our shops. Take your taste buds on a journey in the Kitchen this summer and discover some of the secrets hidden in your favourite chocolate bar. Where does it come from, what makes it taste so good, and what might our changing climate mean for chocolate supplies in the future?


Kitchen sessions are drop-in and last about half an hour. Check the posters and boards for times, or ask at the front desk on arrival.   



This summer, all of our Live Science activities explore the positive actions we can take to protect our planet.

The summer programme is part of our long-term commitment to building a sustainable future. On the 5 June this year, We The Curious declared a climate emergency, joining other institutions in recognising the urgency to act and pledging to become carbon neutral by 2030.
