About the event...

The Cleveland and Teesside Local History Society is celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2018. To mark the occasion, we are holding a Jubilee Meal, in association with Middlesbrough College, at which the menu will pay homage to the dining-out experience of 1968. As well as a three-course meal, prepared and served by the catering students of Middlesbrough College, diners will also enjoy an entertaining and informative talk by Time Traveler Martin Peagam, in which he will illustrate how dining and food have changed over the past fifty years.

He will talk about some familiar dishes, some dishes that you may have forgotten about, and some that you may be pleased to hear have long-disappeared from the menu. Our delicious Jubilee Meal menu will include choices suitable for vegetarians but diners should inform us of any allergies or specific dietary requirements.

It is often said that food can awaken memories: that is exactly what we hope to achieve with the celebration meal.
