School Dinners: Matthew Herbert, Gemma Whelan, Joe Dunthorne, Hollie McNish, Louise Ford
School Dinners returns to East London.
This term's timetable sees actress and comedian Gemma Whelan (Game Of Thrones, One Man Two Guvnors) hosting, reprising her celebrated role as hilarious Headmistress, Chastity Butterworth. Award-winning ‘Submarine’ author Joe Dunthorne steps up as Head of English for the evening whilst Music And Movement is in the incomparable (thank goodness) hands of tap-dancing enthusiast Jenny Fawcett (comedian Louise Ford) who'll teach us the 'scuff and brush'. Over in Poetry Corner will be the slam poet champion and poetry workshop facilitator Hollie McNish. More incredible teachers, speakers and raconteurs will be announced in the coming weeks.
Cult Events head chef Ian Ballantyne will once again be creating a delectable four-course menu which will be revealved soon. The £50 School Dinners ticket includes; a welcome cocktail on arrival, a four course dinner and, of course, all of the entertainment.
Experimental musician especially known for his live sampling.
