Mulan Rouge at The Vaults get your drag on

The Vaults are back up and running after being shutdown for a while during the pandemic starting off season their with a great new production show Mulan Rouge.

Mulan Rouge is basically a mash-up of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge and Disney’s Mulan. The story is about war, love and LGBT but mostly the show is full of cabaret, dancing and singing to hits from the 80’s & 90’s.

Simply Mulan Rouge is a gender-deconstructive show packed full of puns, all whilst you tuck into a feast fit for any Queen (or King).

The Vaults never disappoints. Other immersive dining shows in which I have attended within The Vaults in the past include Aladdin and the Feast of Wonders, An Evening of Meat, Cinders, Dantes Peak Dinner is Coming, Divine Properties and Red Palace all of which were packed with thrills, laughs and a delicious feast.

I was kindly invited down on a press basis to review their latest show Mulan Rouge where I dined and enjoyed a show full of glitz and glamour.

The Vaults

The Vaults are set in a maze of disused railway arches under Waterloo bringing immersive theatre and alternative arts. Their mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.

They strive to continue to support and co-produce innovative immersive theatre, fusing together art and championing unsung voices, especially those of the LGBTQ+ community. They want to make immersive experiences fun for everyone and focuses on big and current ideas told in outlandish, accessible and in the most unique way.

Their latest production show presently is Mulan Rouge which is on till 23 January 2022. This production show by ShayShay is a take on Disney’s Mulan and the movie Moulin Rouge but with a focus on gender, as gender after all is just a social construct. The show is packed full of drag, glitter and naughtiness.

The Banquet of Hoshena

From the creators of Dinner Time Story they now have bought to London a new innovative dining concept entitled Banquet of Hoshena which transports guests to an imaginary land where flavours and emotions are intrinsically linked, and Kings, Queens, fairies and volcanoes come alive on the table.

The Banquet of Hoshena is an innovative dining concept full of illusionary and diners will be taken on a story telling journey of the once lush green kingdom which has banished bad emotions, such as anger, sadness and fear and as a result, removed love, happiness and courage leaving the land bare, dark and empty.

Immersive gastronomic adventure – Gingerline Chambers of Flavour v3

Gingerline returns to East London with another installment of Chambers of Flavour.

But who are Gingerline?

Gingerline is a group of clandestine dining adventurers who have been creating nights of mystery and delicious dining along the East London Line since August 2010. From Crystal Palace to Canonbury they have taken immersive dining to the next level with adventures for London’s boldest and bravest diners-from a multi-room gin filled experience in New Cross, to a submarine mess hall in Shoreditch.

They originally started life as a single dimensional nomadic food fusion which has morphed into three distinct strands of flavoursome forays: Chambers of Flavour, Classic Gingerline and the most recent Flavourology. Continue reading
