If you missed out on the first Dining in the Dark event at the National Space Centre, you’re in luck! The event is returning on Saturday 25 April, when you can take your seat for another immersive sensory dining experience.

By the end of the evening you will see things differently as you’re taken on a journey through the senses, except one!

Guests will enjoy a wine tasting experience, five course tasting menu and guided tour of the National Space Centre without the use of sight. Prepare to be surprised, shocked and inspired, as you take your seat in the heart of the museum for a journey like no other.

Of course we all know that humans have five senses: the eyes to see, the tongue to taste, the nose to smell, the ears to hear, and the skin to touch. By far the most important organs of sense are our eyes and without sight our other senses are heightened, so this science driven tasting menu will bombard every sense, including your understanding of what we eat and why.

Working with RNIB, your visually impaired table hosts will stimulate debate and help you every step of the way (even finding your way to the table). 100% of all profits from the evening will go to charity.

Working with local producers and makers, you’ll enjoy a five-course tasting menu that challenges your senses.

You can view the full menu online, featuring pave of lightly cured salmon, sticky date & butterscotch pudding and more.

Tickets are on sale now and priced at £70 per adult (18+ only) and include wine tasting, five course tasting menu, and entry to the National Space Centre (including galleries). All monies raised on the night will go to charity. Buying a ticket will support both the RNIB and National Space Centre charities.
