There’s a lote more to making a Museums at Night event than MEATS the eye. For this years sacrificial offering to the Museums at Night god is a Victorian Vendor performance in our museum, affectionately called ‘Molli’.
We have our vendor in place (a fantastical chef come puppet), but there’s no victorian food yet. A quick survey of Victorian knowledge amongst the catering team and a request to their understanding of Victorian food comes back with a mind boogling suggestion which opens with ‘Have you seen Heston Blumenthal‘s feasts?’ To which i quickly reply, ‘yes’ and ‘no’.
Then comes the discussion of pies, Victorian or not!? At this rate we’ll be phoning for some take away pizzas to serve up to our mouth watering audience ..
… and so the quest goes on
