Spice and easy family fun coming to Oak House Museum

Oak House Museum is hosting a weekend of family fun in West Bromwich

Oak House Spice is being run by Sandwell Council’s museum staff at the Oak House in Oak Lane on Saturday and Sunday.

The site will be full of food stalls selling foods from around the world and activities to explore the use of spices in food, medicine and lifestyle.

There will also be free family theatre shows, magic shows and balloon modelling and much more.

And on the Sunday there will also be free live music performances, including Hannah Johnson and the Broken Hearts closing the festival from 3.30pm.

Visitor services officer Jessica Hoyle said: “We are really looking forward to celebrating the use of spice at the festival.

“It’s so interesting to discover that what we use in food today is very similar to what was used in West Bromwich more than 400 years ago.

“With some fantastic food and craft stalls attending and plenty of entertainment, it is set to be a fun and exciting weekend.”
