Museum of London Docklands set to celebrate British seafood
Jellied eels, oyster, scallops and much more are up for discussion at an evening celebrating the history of British seafood.
The Museum of London Docklands is hosting the event, which will combine poetry, talks and music.
There will also be a knife skills workshop led by a Billingsgate fishmonger and chef CJ Jackson of the Billingsgate Seafood School.
The event, dubbed ‘Cockles and Mussels @ Late’ coincides with the museum’s 10th anniversary.
The birthday won’t go unnoticed, with a champagne and oyster bar available for those feeling particularly extravagant.
