Venue: M&S Company Archive, Michael Marks Building
This session – organised in partnership with the Marks and Spencer Company Archive at Leeds as part of our 2014 Spring into Summer programme – offers participants the chance to find out how M&S adapted to wartime challenges during the First and Second World Wars and contributed to the Home Front. From staff and stock shortages to utility clothing and the Blitz, join us for an insightful look at wartime Britain through the lens of one of the few pre-war retailers that’s still going strong today.
As well as a talk from an M&S Archivist this session will include a guided tour of the exhibition and a chance to view particular objects relating to the topic from the M&S archive.
Entry is FREE but we do ask participants to register in advance via our Eventbrite page.
