Museum of Brands - Aide-mémoire: Shopping Lists📝 Halloween Twisted Tales Hide & Seek 👻 Autumn Children's Activities 🍁


Shopping Lists, Autumn Half-Term and Ghost Brands oh my!

Which popular fizzy drink was your must-have craving on your weekly shopping list? Coming this October, our new display Aide-Mémoire: Shopping Lists shares an intimate look at consumer habits in the 21st century. Each Shopping list gives a personal insight into the trends and tastes of society and the continuing popularity of old favourites, from the mundane to the downright bizarre! 
Alongside the display, there will be a brand new interactive shopping activity for younger children.
Kicking off the spooky season, we will be offering children's activities including a Halloween hide and seek and more from 22 October!

Aide-Mémoire: Shopping Lists

To launch our new display, join collector Lucy Ireland Gray as she explores the themes that her private collection of shopping lists reveals about the ways people shop, what they buy and for what occasion. Join us for this talk on Saturday 8 October, 12 pm, FREE with general admission. For more info and to book.

Neuroscience Professional Development Talk

How important is attention to advertising? Why aren’t consumers always rational? Recent advances in psychology and neuroscience are challenging the way businesses interact with consumers. Using learnings gathered by Nielsen IQ’s neuroscience team, Dr Joshua Balsters will address these questions, highlighting where our brains rebel against principles of marketing.  22 September, 18:30-19:30, £10. Book here
