The afternoon includes a 40 minute talk on the story from behind the scenes, how Robert Opie created the Museum, his first exhibition at the V&A in 1975 and the philosophy of the collection.

Discover the history of Mother’s Day, and how mums have been portrayed in the media, whether playing family games in Edwardian times, gathering around the 1920s radio, or promoting everything from biscuits to soap.

Complementing the Museum’s spring focus on gender in advertising, women’s liberation is part of this evolution – from suffragettes to wartime factories, the DIY revolution to kitchen convenience.

Above all, the Museum is the place to be, not only to appreciate the role of mothers, but also to reminisce and remember treasured moments triggered by brands such as Spangles, Kelloggs Country Store and Lyons Maid ice lollies.
