Comfort Food collaboration with the National Trust
We've been asked to design a series of supper clubs for The National Trust’s A Home Away from Home: The India Club exhibition. This is a site-specific exhibition that shines a light on the rich social history of this iconic club on the Strand. The exhibition showcases the significance of the India Club as an important meeting point and community space, initially for migrants arriving from the Indian subcontinent, and gradually spreading to a wider intellectual community. Recently this vital space has come under threat from potential redevelopment.
During our immersive supper clubs, personal memories of the India Club will be brought to life through the excellent Indian dishes that have been virtually unchanged since the club opened. With the use of audio, projection and taste, diners will be brought closer to key people in the India Club’s history and will learn about the duality of the Club – as a modest and welcoming space vs a place of major political and historical significance.
We'll be organising a series of supper clubs during February 2019.
