The theme of this year’s competition is International, which links to our upcoming temporary exhibition A Tale of Tea Cities: Tea shipping and Consumption around the 19th century.
The display is being curated and designed by students from the University of St Andrews. It will feature a collection of objects highlighting the tea trade in the era of the clipper ships and the famous tea race of 1866 between two Anstruther captains. The exhibition will be on display in the museum between 16th March and 24th June.
