Go camping in January 2015 - in a new (indoor) pop-up from the very imaginative Art of Dining. they're creating a campsite with canvas, flickering lamplight, ghost stories and sing-songs, and five courses of camping-inspired food. It's on in Bethnal Green over 14 nights between 7th and 22nd January - start getting excited!
"A pop up dining experience combining theatre, food and set design.
The perfect antidote to cold, dark, winter nights: summon up the spirit of summer, and go camping!
Lace up your walking boots, shake out your sleeping bag, check your torch batteries and fill your hip flask, then head to The Pickle Factory, in Bethnal Green for a camping expedition with a difference.
Five courses designed by chef Ellen Parr will encapsulate the fun, experimental, and sometimes charcoal-y flavours of campsite cooking. In one evening, you will experience a whole weekend of outdoors eating. Dishes include a posh pot-noodle (a version of Vietnamese pho); a Thai twist on the campfire barbecue; and a Moroccan breakfast dish with eggs and flat bread.
Release your inner Famous Five as you boil up water in a billy can, cook and share your food, whittle sticks for toasting marshmallows, listen to ghost stories, and join in the sing-song.
Set designer Alice Hodge will transform the bare white walls of The Pickle Factory into a campsite in the English countryside. Expect billowing canvas, flickering lamplight, nature all around, the seagull’s cry – everything you might expect from a camping trip apart from the drizzle and mud.
The perfect Christmas gift for someone who just cannot wait for the return of the long, light evenings of summer."
