Spirit of the Cracker Packers


To celebrate the unveiling of the Cracker Packers sculpture near to the McVitie’s factory in Caldewgate, Carlisle, this exhibition focuses on the people who inspired the sculpture’s creation.

Sharing the stories from the female workforce past and present, we hear through their memories about what life was like inside the factory.
