Beauty and the Feast is a blend of theatre and a supper club from the designers Darling & Edge.  This is their latest immersive event that is happening in The Vaults with the story being loosely based on the well-known fairy tale Beauty and the Beast.  Be warned though this is not your average panto as this is for adults only, so leave behind your kids.

What a HELL of a performance – Bat Out of Hell (press night)

Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits are played in this powerful rock and roll musical.

Immersive food adventourous mystery – Gingerline: Chamber of Flavours v2

Chamber of Flavours is a great multi roomed immersive dining experience.  I travelled through four very different rooms all with a lot of immersive actvity to get involved in.

For me the best dining rooms Continue reading
