"Pop-up mess"? Sounds like a visit by the grandchildren. All those pieces of Lego lying around waiting for bare feet - ouch!
But no, this lucky dip selection from What's On Richmond is a Mess in the military sense - though probably not much like the one in our historic photo. It's open to Green Howards Museum visitors every Friday and Saturday in April from 11 Ack Emma onward, in the stunning Normanby Room. Hot drinks and baked snacks are promised. Sounds wonderful.
No Meals Ready-to-Eat, presumably?
