Theatre of Feasts

This year, we’re thinking about the culinary experience in an unconventional way. Conceived by Hackney-based studio Ab Rogers Design, our new Theatre of Feasts turns our award-winning chefs into headline acts, who'll delivering a performance to 200 communally seated diners. Not unlike a circus big top, where food is the star performer, the Theatre of Feasts is inspired by the notion that a structure should be defined by the activities it contains. Diners will become part of the action, sitting in an unbroken ring of bamboo tables around the perimeter of the tent and encircling the chefs who take center stage at a bright kitchen island - executing dinner ‘in the round’ for their audience. To get there, cross one of three narrow humpbacked bamboo bridges into a warm, vibrant and intimate social space.
