Welcome picnickers, experiential artists Platterform continue their residency at the Skyroom launching straight into their next hotly tipped immersive food and drink adventure – The London Picnic Club, from now until the 11th August.
Platterform collected the Young British Foodies ‘Best Food Experience’ award earlier this year with their curated events to give diners a memorable, multi-sensory experience; with an aim to surprise and excite audiences, with top quality food and drink at the heart everything they do. Platterform create feasts for all the five senses with performance, space and social interaction.
Running for the duration of the Olympics, the Skyroom will undergo a garden transformation with a difference – a colourful roof top oasis allowing guests to retreat from the London chaos below. Share and enjoy exquisite food and drink presented in the form of charming picnic hampers, take part in garden games, catch a variety of exclusive live musical and theatrical performances or stretch out on blankets and cushions to watch a classic summertime movie at their mini screen on the green.
To celebrate the multi-national appeal of London playing host to the Olympics, Platterform’s new head chef Alejandro Bello (of Ceviche fame) has collected and carefully reinvented select dishes from various corners of the world all assembled beautifully inside an iconic British picnic hamper. Designed as a sharing meal for two or more, expect London Picnic Club hampers to contain innovative tapas style signature hot dishes as well as a fine selection of St. John’s Bakery artisanal breads, Neil’s Yard Dairy cheeses, Spanish and Italian charcuterie, home-made preserves and dips, fresh fruits and desserts.
Accompanying cocktails take inspiration from the quintessential British Summer garden where Platterform invite creative coffee company Dunne Frankowski to collaborate in developing exclusive serves such as a quirky take on the classic Pimms Cup, aromatic Zacapa rum concoctions to pair with your cheese and refreshing Tanqueray gin and iced tea infusions. Get your friends together and book now for a once in a life time picnic experience.
