Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Mums were used to sell everything from soap to Spanx in vintage British advertising. Women were frequently portrayed as domestic beings with aprons around their waists, hoovers in their hands and curlers in their hair. Thankfully things are starting to change. Go on a nostalgia trip at this talk at the Museum of Brands, which will revisit the women who gave a face to brands like Kellogg’s County Store, Rowntrees Cocoa and Lyon Maid ice lollies. Stick around for a leisurely post-talk cream tea.
