On Wednesday 17th July joinn a one night celebration of Evelyn Waugh's best / best known novel Brideshead Revisited, at The Idler Academy in Westbourne Park Road. Expect an indulgent night, with quail's eggs, cocktails, and readings from the book. 'Dressing up is positively encouraged'!
"In this special Supper Club Claire Coutinho of pop-up dining club The Novel Diner teams up with the Idler Academy. You are invited into the heady, decadent world of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited. For one night come and be a pre-War Bright Young Thing:
“Oxford, in those days, was still a city of aquatint… The bells rang out high and clear over her gables and cupolas, exhaled the soft airs of centuries of youth. It was this cloistral hush which gave our laughter its resonance, and carried it still, joyously, over the intervening clamour.”
You will be indulged with Hendrick’s gin cocktails, canapés of Caviar aux Blinis followed by three course feast of Quails Eggs in edible nest, Duck Breast, Victoria Sponge and Strawberries, and Port. Our very own Charles Ryder will entertain you with readings from Brideshead Revisited. Beautiful editions of Evelyn Waugh books will be on sale.
Dressing up is positively encouraged, so get out the Oxford bags and flapper dresses whether you are a Sebastian, Julia, Anthony Blanche or even, perhaps, an Aloysius.
Champagne, Port and other fine wines will be available to buy."
