On Saturday 28 September 2019 take your seat for an immersive sensory dining experience: Dine in the Dark. Working with the RNIB, the National Space Centre is hosting a journey through the senses, except one!
Enjoy a wine tasting experience and five course tasting menu and by the end of the night you'll see things differently. Prepare to be surprised, shocked and inspired, as you take your seat in the heart of the museum for a journey like no other.
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. We perceive up to 80 per cent of all impressions by means of our sight. Without our sight our other senses are heightened, so we have created a science driven tasting menu to bombard every sense, including your understanding of what we eat and why.
Our visually impaired table hosts will stimulate debate and help you every step of the way.
Working with local producers and makers, we have created a five-course tasting menu that challenges your senses. The menu will remain a surprise, however, we will cater to your dietary requirements.
Malika Andress, Head of Marketing at the National Space Centre, explains: “Dine in the Dark is an experience for those who want to try something different. We want you to be as adventurous as we are. You will try things that might be outside of your normal comfort zone, but this is about future food and you will be the first to experience them.”
Tickets cost £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.
