We were rather impressed by the way the last pop-up from Dinner Time Stories, Le Petit Chef, told a story on the diners' plates with the help of some fancy projectors. If you went along and enjoyed that - they've a new pop-up/show/meal on the way called Banquet of Hoshena. This time they're taking the story to Westfield Shepherd's Bush.
Once again, there's a whole story that surrounds the dinner and is projected onto the table for an immersive experience, with props on the table (even the cutlery) that interact with the tale. Here's the story this time around:
This one-of-a-kind dining experience takes guests on a journey through a mystical land known as Hoshena. As the dinner starts and the lights dim, the Queen of Hoshena tells guests of a once-green and luscious kingdom that has banished bad emotions, such as anger, sadness and fear and as a result, removed love, happiness and courage leaving the land bare, dark and empty.
The whole thing is a two-hour show - taking place in conjunction with a five-course meal, paired with wine and cocktails. And you can expect a good deal of dry ice to be part of the show too. We haven't been to one of these - but having seen the video of the previous event, we do think the whole thing looks rather compelling.
