Discover what baking would have been like 100 years ago with Petersfield Museum’s Great War Bake Off. This Great British Bake Off themed competition will allow young and old to put your baking skills to the test as well as learning about how rationing and food shortages impacted the lives of those living through the First World War.

There will also be the opportunity to follow members of Museum staff, volunteers and special guests as they follow genuine First World War recipes from Trench Cake to ANZAC biscuits and potato bread.
