Dinner Party at the End of the World

Centenary Building

Tue 4 – Sat 15 July

Mary-Ellen McTague

Inspired by Party Skills for the End of the World, renowned Mancunian chef Mary-Ellen McTague (Aumbry, the Real Junk Food Project, MIF15’s High Tea in Wonderland) has devised a dinner party with a difference. Each evening, just 20 guests will share a special last supper, with delicious and surprising food that explores themes of survival, extinction, scarcity and opulence. McTague’s creative menu will give you a flavour of how we may choose to eat, and what we may have to eat, come the end of days.

If you have already booked for Dinner Party at the End of the World, you will need to order your drinks in advance. Two options are available:

  • Wines: Tasting glasses of five wines, each carefully paired with one of the five courses £25
  • Cordials (non-alcoholic): A unique selection of homemade cordials, blended and chosen to complement the food £12

To book your drinks, please visit our dedicated Drinks at the End of the World page, choose your date and select the drinks for you and your party.

Due to the nature of the event, all drinks must be ordered and paid for in advance. If you don’t place a drinks order in advance, we’ll only be able to offer you water.
