Edible Stories – The Library

The mere notion of combining food with my favourite theatre shows is an idea made in Bardette Heaven – but that is exactly what those clever chaps at LIBRARY have done. They have joined forces with EDIBLE STORIES to present a series of evenings full of themed food delights, inspired by some of the greatest West End musicals- featuring Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

This four week theatrical inspired pop up takes place at members club LIBRARY, right in the heart of London’s West End. They promise to deliver a menu uniquely created and presented in comic book form by Neil Gibson to tell the story of the pop up and collaboration. The play is broken down throughout the meal and presented as various edible courses. The food, your interaction with it, the interaction with the people at the table with you, and your environment will allow you to pull together the clues and gradually uncover the story.

Some menu highlights include: a shape shifting cocktail concoction that will cause your mouth to tingle and the room the light up (Matilda); a mulled mint and sage delight topped with some infused buffalo trace and French rough vermouth (Les Miserables); and if you are a total chocaholic and wish to immerse yourself in everything chocolate, The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory week is just the ticket and will feature a spiked and nutty poached rhubarb, along with the chance to maybe be lucky enough to be given a selection of Wonka’s handmade treats to take home.


Launching 17 April, LIBRARY is opening its doors for both members and non-members to experience the enchanted venue and plays as retold through EDIBLE STORIES.
