A sweet exhibition exploring the story of the Lanarkshire confectionery industry, from snowballs and soor plooms to tablet. Sweetie making was one of the earliest manufacturing industries in Lanarkshire. King’s of Wishaw were the first; starting out as fruit farmers and expanding into confectionery when technology became available with the advent of the Industrial Revolution. This exhibition takes a nostalgic look at all our old favourites, as well as the history of sugar, the slave trade and current issues today around obesity and tooth decay. Join us over the summer holidays for fun activities for families.
