I receive quite a lot of press releases in my inbox and often I have a quick glance and think nothing of them. However on Friday I read one about Gingerline Jubilee – “The Oh So Secret Food and Art Fusion Phenomenon” – and I thought it sounded so cool I wanted to share the details with you lovely lot!
Described as an “underground immersive dining extravaganza”, Gingerline Jubilee takes place at a hidden location along the Jubilee line and combines “set design, a secret menu and complete immersion in a parallel reality, this is an experience designed for an adventurous palate and dating spirit”. Sounds pretty awesome doesn’t it?!
I love food and art, and have a real passion for discovering London’s biggest secrets, so Gingerline Jubilee sounds right up my alley! The event is organised by Gingerline who create temporary nomadic dining experiences which in the past have involved surreal puppet workshops with marrionette diners, fully fledged fairy tale forests, or most recently a retro space shuttle from the Planet Gingerline! Intriguied? Me too!
I’d not heard of Gingerline before but have tried several other “secret” theatre and immersive dining experiences, such as The Pale Blue Door, and loved every one of them. Like others I’ve experienced, patrons don’t actually know where Gingerline Jubilee takes part until they arrive. You simply go to any tube station on the Jubilee line and wait for a text message at 6pm with clues to find your destination. My inner Miss Marple loves it!
Tickets to Gingerline Jubilee sell out mega quickly and their last set is being released this Tuesday 20th January at Midday for experiences between 25th February to 14th March 2015. Each ticket is £55 – £60 and includes a welcome drink, four course set menu, a keep sake momento, and of course all the excitement and entertainment. To be one of the Gingerline elite you can buy your tickets here (www.gingerline.co.uk/jubilee) You can also follow all the Gingerline news on twitter – @gingerline – and Facebook.
I love that in this digital age there are still some secrets that can stay hidden in London, and that people seem to really get involved with the experience and not splash every detail all over their social media accounts. Gingerline Jubilee definitely sounds like one secret I’d like to discover!
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
