Dinner Party at the End of the World

A secret venue

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.

Produced by Manchester International Festival.
