Straw Bear Festival Memorabilia

In addition to badges and programmes, an assortment of other memorabilia has been produced in association with the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival over the years.

The Whittlesey Museum collection includes items such as tankards, decorated plates and prints commemorating the Straw Bear.

The photograph below shows a Straw Bear themed cupcake which was on sale during the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival in 2016 – a very relevant item but sadly too fragile to enter the permanent collection directly, hence only being recorded by the museum in photographic form.
