On Monday 25 June, Voices At The Table founders Miranda York and Anna Sulan Masing will continue their exploration into the conversations around food with the 7th event of the series. Drawing together voices from the realms of literature, theatre, history and food, speakers will read or perform pieces of writing that evoke a visual, sensory and emotive connection to food, sitting among the audience and joining them for a special three-course meal prepared by legendary chef Henry Harris at his Clerkenwell Pub & Dining Rooms, The Coach in London.
If you happen to be in London that evening, consider getting the tickets fast because these tend to sell within minutes for the previous events.
Following the ethos of At The Table’s online editorial, print magazine, films and previous events, the Voices At The Table series celebrates British food culture in all its glorious variety. Finding a setting that shares the same philosophy is integral to the events. Having been a drinking destination since 1790, the site in which The Coach resides is steeped in history, and now with Henry Harris at the helm, continues a legacy that instantly attracted Miranda and Anna. They are thrilled to be collaborating with Henry on this special event.
The At The Table event series is run by founder and editor Miranda York in collaboration with poet Anna Sulan Masing. Each event is a curated evening of readings and performances around food, bringing together an eclectic mix of voices across the literary, performance, and food worlds. The focus is on bringing people together from different industries and backgrounds, revealing stories and memories that encourage us to look at food from a fresh perspective.
The speakers that will be performing throughout the evening are Henry Harris Industry figurehead and chef director of The Coach, The Hero of Maida and Three Cranes; Sarah Winman Award-winning novelist, actor and author of ‘When God Was a Rabbit’, ‘A Year of Marvellous Ways’ and ‘Tin Man’; Alex von Tunzelmann Historian, screenwriter (‘Churchill’ starring Brian Cox) and author of four books including ‘Indian Summer: The Secret End of an Empire’; Sophie Mackintosh Writer, winner of the White Review Short Story Prize, author of debut novel ‘The Water Cure’; Kevin Shen Asian-American actor who has performed in the West End, National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company
The evening will start at 6.30pm with dinner served at 7pm. Tickets are priced at £65 and include the performances, a welcome drink, three-course dinner and wine throughout the evening. Tickets will be released on Tuesday 5 June, via the At The Table website: atthetable.co.uk
