READING BISCUIT TOWN 200

2022 marks 200 years since Joseph Huntley opened his first baker’s shop at 72 London Street, Reading. This moment marked the beginning of a business that would become world-famous, revolutionising biscuit-making across the globe like never before, and transforming Reading’s business and biscuit heritage forever: Huntley & Palmers.

This year, Reading is re-discovering its biscuit heritage with a series of events and activities across the town. Discover details of the town-wide programme on the Visit Reading website.

The MERL and Reading Museum are drawing on our Huntley & Palmers collections to offer a joint programme of events, as part of Museums Partnership Reading, and funded by Arts Council England.
