JOURNEY TO THE UNDERWORLD
Wednesday 7th November 2018 and 3 other dates
An immersive dining and theatre experience from the creators of The Murdér Express with a new menu creatively crafted by BBC MasterChef Finalist 2017 Louisa Ellis. Known for her intense and creative flavours, this very special guest will be designing an imaginatively curated three-course menu fit for all dietary requirements that ties in with the theatrical narrative.
Guests will join Claude, the shackled conductor, and his lowly assistant Gordy, on a quest for absolution, redemption and eternal love that will take them all the way to the Underworld. Along the way, guests will do their best to outwit the seductive Gatekeeper, the hunched Harbinger, and the damnable Dark One, all the while praying that this isn’t a one-way ticket.
