The ultimate immersive Christmas party, at Oval Space Brought to you by The Art of Dining
In deepest, darkest Hackney there lies an enchanted forest, a mystical world of twisted fairy tales and fantastical stories. At the heart of the forest awaits a feast for wandering travellers just like you, more delicious than a gingerbread house and more tempting than a prince’s kiss. To reach the feast you must run the gauntlet of strange characters and terrifying beasts, who will try to trick you with riddles and clues, and lure you to a sticky end. But there are also friends in the forest; amiable spirits who will teach you how to pitch a tent or find a tree house and help you survive a night at the mercy of the wicked woods. Will you eat the poisoned apple? Will you follow a trail of breadcrumbs back to safety? Write your own story throughout the course of the evening and decide how it ends – you are the author of your own fate.
Your party will be catered for by Moro-trained chef Ellen Parr, with three courses inspired by folk tales and fables. Expect wild boar pâté with poisoned toffee crab apples, kid stew with bread crumb trail served in a cauldron over an open fire, soup served in baby pumpkins, Rapunzel salad with crispy angel hair and much more. Whatever awaits you in the woods – friend or foe, wolf or woodcutter – it will be an experience you’ll never forget.
Enter an enchanted forest, a mystical world of twisted fairy tales and fantastical stories. Be immersed in the vast space and lose your senses. Detail and surprises are woven seamlessly into the enormous forest created. At the heart of the forest awaits a feast for wandering travellers just like you.
