‘Eating for Victory’ - A Kitchen Front broadcast
It’s 1940. Radio London and the Ministry of Food are recording their popular radio programme ‘The Kitchen Front’ at the Tea House Theatre.
London residents lucky enough to secure a ticket will enjoy cocktails, canapés, performances from London’s variety stars and swing dancing through the blackout.
With your ration card, you are invited to try a selection of hors d’oeuvres—new and innovative recipes created using wartime rations. You’ll participate in the making of ‘Eating for Victory’ while your radio hosts and Ministry officials are wrapped up in the dramas of the Blitz, both on air and off. Come in your wartime finest and be ready to take part!
In the spirit of community and generosity that kept Britain going through the war, Hush Hush Hoopla is collecting provisions for the Norwood and Brixton Food Bank. To receive your ration card, we kindly ask you to bring a few items to donate on the door. Their shopping list can be found here.
8pm on Friday 5th June & Sunday 7th June
at Tea House Theatre Vauxhall, 139 Vauxhall Walk, London SE11 5HL
