Dining in the Dark at the National Space Centre

Think you’re a bit of a food expert? How about if you were dining completely in the dark? Well, on 28 September 2019 you can take your seat for an immersive sensory dining experience at the National Space Centre, and it sounds brilliant!

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).

Working with local producers and makers, you’ll enjoy a five-course tasting menu that challenges your senses. The menu will remain a surprise, however, dietary requirements will be catered for.

This event is hosted for charity and the Centre has expressed thanks to partners including RNIB, Everards, Majestic and Gelato Village.

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.
