Piece Hall Peas

Posted On: 24 May 2017

In celebration of The Piece Hall’s reopening this summer, The Piece Hall Trust are hosting a green-fingered day of pea planting.

Families are invited to join the Heritage & Learning team this half-term to plant a pea and watch it grow, as they count down to 1 August.

Heritage & Learning Officer at The Piece Hall Trust, Megan Sealy said “We’re thrilled to offer a free activity for families to get involved with this half term. Heritage is really important to us and something that’s at the forefront of our learning programme so we’ve chosen planting peas as a throwback to the Georgian era - around the time The Piece Hall was built, peas were a popular vegetable as they were easy to grow and could be dried to make them last longer.”

The Piece Hall Trust team will also be around to talk about the exciting plans for The Piece Hall including Welcome - a free festival to celebrate the reopening of The Piece Hall. 

Visitors can drop-in to The Piece Hall pop-up located at Woolshops Shopping Centre (the unit opposite Specsavers) anytime between 11am - 3pm on Friday 2 June.
