THE ART OF DINING & THE LONDON DUNGEON PRESENT
ESCAPE THE GREAT FIRE
Fire & Feast
Unique evening pop up dining experience from Tuesday 14 June 2016
The Art of Dining and The London Dungeon are delighted to present Fire & Feast, a unique evening event marking the opening of an immersive new show – Escape the Great Fire – at the famous attraction. Diners will journey through The Great Fire of London presented as a five course pop-up dining experience, combining food, theatre, music and design in the atmospheric setting of the London Dungeon.
London. 1666. The capital is a disaster waiting to happen; timber houses packed cheek-by-jowl, just waiting for a spark to set the whole city ablaze. At the Dungeon Tavern, a feast is being held in honour of Sir Thomas Bludworth, the Lord Mayor of London. The evening is beset by rumours and worry about a fire that started the previous night and is said to be spreading to all areas of the city. Bludworth’s staff, at his behest, are trying to keep a lid on the creeping panic, but as the evening unfolds it becomes clear that this could be the guests’ last meal and they may not make it out alive…
Guests will get an exclusive taste of the London Dungeon’s new ‘Escape The Great Fire’ show as well as sampling some special gallows humour courtesy of the London Dungeon’s Jester and the Plague Surgery, which is dealing with a nasty case of the Great Plague.
They will then make their way to the Dungeon Tavern where they will be greeted by a welcome cocktail and seated for the feast. This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience The Great Fire of London from the inside whilst enjoying The Art of Dining’s signature combination of delicious food and immersive ambience. The menu includes five delicious courses all themed around ‘fire’ elements such as ‘Smoke’ and ‘Ash’. Guests can start the meal with one of the signature cocktails such as Farriner’s Flame, before tucking in to dishes such as Sichuan style beef ribs in fire sauce and burnt butter cake served with burnt white chocolate and stewed gooseberries.
Tickets are £55 per person including welcome drink, five course meal, entertainment and access to selected shows at the London Dungeon and can be booked at http://www.theartofdining.co.uk/buy-tickets/. Find out more about the London Dungeon at www.thedungeons.com/london

The Art of Dining
A collaboration between Moro trained Chef Ellen Parr and Artist set designer Alice Hodge. They met at university in Glasgow, where they would often create a feast from the contents of a M&S skip after a night out.
Set designer Alice Hodge is an art follower, creator, teacher and collector of tat. She has designed bespoke arrangements for weddings, parties, theatre productions and photo shoots. Interactive elements and attention to detail are what make her tick.
Chef Ellen Parr spent her formative years working at Moro and you can taste the Middle Eastern and Spanish influences in her food. She recently travelled around South East Asia and India researching cooking methods, techniques and flavours. She also has an obsession with chilli sauce. Expect the unexpected with her unusual menus. www.theartofdining.co.uk
