Update - It's back for March and April 2016 in Hackney
The Art of Dining return to The Pickle Factory, where they started the year with their 'Gone Camping' pop-up, with another immersive night of food and entertainment, this time re-creating a 1980s office party. Expect 80s music, overhead projectors, 4 courses of 80s-inspired food and more. Some nights have sold out - just 3 nights remain, on Thurs 10th, Fri 11th & Weds 16th December.
"Oval Space and The Art of Dining bring you The 80s Office Christmas Party: drinks, dinner, dancing and plenty of paper in the photocopier. An 80s-themed pop-up experience combining food, theatre, music and set design, inspired by the classic office Christmas party.
Amanda Bellingham, female powerhouse and boss of The Pickle Factory Ltd, will be taking the night off from monitoring pickle production and hosting your party instead. From a welcome speech celebrating herself as ‘the Margaret Thatcher of condiments’ to end of year appraisals and a slow dance at the Christmas disco, she will make sure the party goes off with a bang and leave you feeling really quite pickled.
The 80s Office Party will see set designer Alice Hodge take you back to the decade of shoulder pads and big hair, transforming The Pickle Factory into a classic office environment of overhead projectors and pinboards, filing cabinets and pot plants, complete with a refreshing lack of computers and the all important, and much abused, photocopier. Grab a glass of punch from the water cooler and get ready to enjoy Moro-trained chef Ellen Parr’s food classics from the era, presented with a contemporary twist.
Whether you want to party with a group of friends or book a table of 20 for your work do, you won’t find a more entertaining or interactive Christmas party experience anywhere else. If you’d like to book all 60 wheely chairs for your whole company please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So crimp that fringe, pop on those shoulder pads, straighten that comedy Christmas tie and head to The Pickle Factory (10 minute walk from Bethnal Green tube) for a night of disco dancing, Secret Santa, pickle and an awkward encounter with the boss, no doubt."
