I love the zany and the quirky, so it’s probably no surprise that of my favourite London pasttimes is going to immersive theatre. I’ve now been to Gingerline productions 4 times, and I’m not sure that I’ll ever get enough of them.
Disclaimer: My latest visit to the Chambers of Flavour was as a guest of Gingerline, but I’ve gone 3 times beforehand on my own dime. To say I was already a fan-girl is *quite* an understatement…
I tried writing about the experiences we’ve had half a dozen times, but struggled to find adequate words (getting the furtherest along here and still failing miserably)
Gingerline is a group of food and drink enthusiasts whose goal is to create the ultimate dining experience. Co-founded by Kiwi Suz and fiery-locked Kerry, they head up a group of clandestine dining adventurers, creating nights of mystery and delicious dining along the East London Line since 2010.
To say that their shenanigans are insane and wonderful is an understatement – which is why I’m drawn to them like a moth to a flame every time that I hear they are running a new version.
Gingerline is quite unique insofar that it’s an immersive dining experience – after arriving at the top-secret location you go through a series of chambers, each one an inter-dimensional leap into new, almost magical worlds. Within each world (the latest version has 7) you’ll get to nibble on something delectable and unique – and characters living within the worlds make you very much part of the story.
That’s about as clear as mud isn’t it – but every single time we’ve been we come out with faces sore from smiling and laughing.
Forget the willing suspension of disbelief – it’s altogether more immersive. In fact leaving your empty cocktails glasses behind and going back out into the normal world is a teeny tiny bit disappointing. The Chambers of Flavour ticketing portal has just opened again for a limited time – honestly, it’s simply amazing what they do, hence the multiple visits…
