'Whitechapel: Suspects, Lunatics and a Leather Apron' is an immersive theatrical event from Apolcalypse Events set in 1888, at the time of Jack The Ripper. Tickets are £26, and this gets you into their venue which they have transformed into an historical setting. There you will be given a role, and will take part in a re-enactment. It all sounds lots of fun, and will take place over ten nights starting Friday 28th October 2016, and continuing until Saturday 19th November, mostly on Fridays and Saturdays. It's not a food event, but it'll excite your senses in lots of other ways...
