"The Cocktail Gardener – the creative force behind one of London’s hottest pop-up cocktail bars – is delighted to announce two very special Midnight Apothecary events to mark the end of summer and prepare for winter.
In a unique Halloween collaboration on Saturday 27 October, Julie Friend, winner of BBC MasterChef and The Perfume Mistress, Tanya Moulding will join The Cocktail Gardener to turn Midnight Apothecary into an autumnal feast for the senses. Hot gourmet delights to warm the cockles, renowned alcoholic potions to drive out evil spirits and season-inspired natural fragrances will make for a magical evening. A cosy firepit, flares, bats, jack 'o lanterns, marshmallows, hot mulled concoctions, live music – and perhaps even apple bobbing, complete the picture.
The venue for both events is the Brunel Museum rooftop garden that has recently been transformed by The Cocktail Gardener into a secluded rural idyll teeming with flowers, herbs and vegetables. It is set in the charmingly cobbled riverside area of historic Rotherhithe Village on the Thames Path, close to the Mayflower Pub and Sands Films – and only one minute from Rotherhithe Overground station.
Admission is free. There is a cash bar for food and drinks. For those brave enough, a guided tour of the Brunel Tunnel Grand Entrance Hall, a vast underground amphitheatre, is an optional extra (£5)."
