The summer’s ultimate music, food and family festival, The Big Feastival, has announced two exclusive dining experiences for this year. The Friday Night Supper Club will take place on Friday 28 August and The Art of Dining’s ‘Gone Camping’ will host
This year’s Friday Night Supper Club in aid of The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation will be curated by the fantastic team at The Modern Pantry. The restaurant was opened in 2008 by Anna Hansen MBE, it has won numerous awards including two AA rosettes, and has been listed as a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide. Head Chef Rob Mcleary is a proud supporter of The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation’s Fifteen Apprenticeship Programme and the restaurant currently employs two former Fifteen Graduates, Joe Kerswell and John Emmerson. Joe and John have designed the mouth-watering Supper Club menu and alongside Rob, will be in charge of service on the night.
The Modern Pantry’s Friday Night Supper Club will take place under the canopy of the AEG Big Kitchen, which will be transformed into an al fresco dining experience from 8 – 10pm. As the Official Champagne Partner of the festival, Champagne Laurent-Perrier will treat guests to a glass of Champagne Laurent-Perrier NV Brut on arrival and they will also enjoy a specially matched glass of Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé with dessert. All food and drink is included, with all profits from the evening going to The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. Tickets are priced at £75.
The Art of Dining is the brainchild of Moro trained Chef Ellen Parr and accomplished Set Designer Alice Hodge, who have received rave reviews for their incredible pop-up dining experiences since they launched four years ago. As a UK summer festival exclusive, Ellen and Alice will be inviting visitors to put on their walking boots, pack their torches, fill up their hip flasks and come on an adventure with the The Art of Dining’s ‘Gone Camping’ dining experience. Each of the five courses will encapsulate the fun, experimental, sometimes charcoaled flavours of camping, taking visitors back in time to family holidays of yesteryear. Tickets are priced at £65.
