The fun doesn't have to stop at Christmas. As a child I wished I was one of the Famous Five so i've already got my walking boots, I've shaken out my sleeping bag and I am heading out camping.
Well hold on just a second there is a twist. The Art of Dining have created ‘Gone Camping’ which combines theatre, food and set design. The best bit of all it's in the warm.
Set designer Alice Hodge will be transforming the Pickle Factory, near Bethnal Green into a wonderful campsite in the English countryside.
There will be billowing canvas, flickering lamplight, nature all around, can you hear the seagull’s cry – everything you might expect from a camping trip apart from the drizzle and mud.
The best bit of all their will be a five course meal designed by chef Ellen Parr that will have all the charcoal-y flavours of campsite cooking but will be edible and wonderfully delicious.
Well I might be a mean cook in a kitchen but who said anything about being a good cook on a campsite stove.
The perfect antidote to cold, dark, winter nights.
