Have a slap up school dinner
Set in the stirring Victorian surroundings of the Central Foundation Boys’ School, School Dinners will take you back to school for a slap up meal that nods playfully to those unlamented lunches of childhood (lumpy custard anyone?), before Assembly, and an hour’s wit and wisdom from some of the nation’s finest and funniest minds
The event is starting off with Registration, where you will be serenaded by the school choir and reassured with bespoke cocktails, good for anyone suffering a flashback. Led through to the Dining Hall, you will be served a four-course banquet by Dinner Ladies dressed in the obligatory gingham, until your Head Teacher (part Dr Thomas Arnold, part Mrs McClusky) interrupts coffee to lead you through to Assembly. There will even be a bike shed, behind which reprobates may smoke.
