Event Details

a new project exploring food & memory with The Real Junk Food Project, for adults aged 55+

Five FREE workshops on the last Tuesday of every month

Only 10 places are available for each workshop; please book in advance by calling 0113 243 8765

We are looking for people aged 55+ to share their experiences and memories of cooking. We want to hear about your favourite meal, the dish you cook the best and your worst family dinner experience. Can you make someone love you by cooking for them?

During the workshops we will eat our way through your memories with a specially prepared meal!

Poet Christian Watson will host the evening and afterwards the stories and recipes will be put together as a book, exhibition and performance.

If transport is a problem, we can help organise and pay for you to get here.

To talk about that or to discuss your access needs, let us know…
call April Skipp on 0113 259 5702
