It is that time of year again. Back to school. But I'm not talking about the kids. You're about to sharpen your pencils, polish your shoes, and relive those old school days. What you won't need is a packed lunch. Central Foundation Boys' School does school dinners. At least they will be on the 26th October. Jack Arts & Cult Events present School Dinners, 'a ground-breaking dining experience' that will remind you of your childhood school days: smoking behind the bike shed, horrific headmasters, and those all important dinner ladies.
You will arrive at school at precisely 6.30pm for registration, after which you will be seated and watch a performance by the school choir. Juice will be provided (cocktails).
For your snack you will receive cereal milk foam and sourdough bread with butter. This will be followed by salmon and beetroot parfait, and a pheasant breast main course. Vegetarians will also be accommodated with a fennel salad and roast squash dish.
Cleanse your palette with an apple sorbet ice-pop, and then enjoy a qauadruple chocolate brownie with plantain ice-cream, toasted pecan nuts, and a sweet & sour caramel sauce. There is no lumpy custard here.
Tickets to this four-course banquet are £60; the experience will also include an assembly by the headmaster and entertainment from guests such as medical doctor, Ben Goldacre, poet, Mark Grist, DJ, Charlie Dark, and the eclectic musician, ESKA.
