A fascinating new display celebrating over 200 years of Royal-inspired packaging and Jubilee souvenirs will open at the Museum of Brands in London’s Notting Hill on 21 May 2022. The display will feature products and brands that show how UK consumer culture and Royal history has changed since the Victorian era.
Highlights will include:
A new display shining a spotlight on some of the weird and wonderful objects that have been designed to commemorate members of the Royal Family and royal events from the past – from a rare 1830s gin flask celebrating Queen Victoria, to a 120-year-old chocolate bar commemorating the coronation of King Edward VII, to a set of the recent ‘Platinum Jubbly’ crockery – one of 10,000 souvenir items produced in China with a classic Del Boy misspelling of Jubilee.

Alongside the visual displays, families can get involved by making their own Jubilee-themed bunting and crown, and enjoy two new Jubilee trails for children and adults which call attention to some of the captivating Royal objects of the Museum’s collection.
