Scripts for Supper: theatrical dining with a difference.
Scripts for Supper creates brand new adaptations of classic stories, and serves them alongside a bespoke menu inspired by the world of the play.
We’ve been creating our divine dinners since 2017. What started as a eureka moment in the middle of the night following Annie’s appearance on MasterChef in 2016 has become a 5*, sell out immersive dining experience that critics have called “phenomenal” (London Theatre 1), “truly magical” (Western Morning News) and “You’d be mad to miss it!” (Love Pop Ups London)
Our experiences fuse together theatre, food, music, song (and sometimes) dance, and take our diners on a culinary and theatrical journey.
Food is the ultimate sensory experience. It provides us with an endless array of smells, tastes, textures, and sounds, and if good theatre is food for the soul, then Scripts for Supper will leave both soul and tummy very well fed!
