Come and share your memories of Southport’s Chewits Factory!

Come and share your memories of Southport’s Chewits Factory!

Did you work at Holland’s, Chewits factory on Virginia Street? Or any of the other sweet factories in Southport? Do you remember the smells and sounds of walking past the factories? Were Chewits your favourite pocket money treat?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

The Atkinson is putting together a pop up display for the summer holidays to highlight Southport’s sweet making past.

The display is part of our plans to celebrate Roald Dahl and the Summer Reading challenge and our chance to champion our very own ‘Chocolate Factory’!

The family friendly display will be part of our Summer Holiday activities in the Discovery Box.

We would love to hear from you about your memories of Holland’s, Chewits or any of the other sweets factories in Southport.

You can get in touch using the details below if you have anything to share or come along to one of our drop in events to meet the team and tell your story.

Drop in Events at The Atkinson, in the Discovery Box:
