The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education – Albert Einstein

SCHOOL DINNERS is a groundbreaking fine dining experience, introducing provocative cultural engagement in a distinctly ‘old school’ environment.

Today we can reveal that best-selling author, broadcaster, campaigner, medical doctor and academic Ben Goldacre has joined the impressive selection of guests speakers. Ben specialises in unpicking the misuse of science and statistics by journalists, politicians, quacks, drug companies, and more. His first book ‘Bad Science’ sold over 500,000 copies and reached #1 in the UK non-fiction charts.

The first event will also feature teacher turned performance poet Mark Grist, DJ, teacher, wordsmith and leader of London’s Run Dem Crew, Charlie Dark, and exquisite visionary vocalist ESKA. The full line-up, featuring other incredible teachers, speakers and raconteurs will be announced in the coming weeks.

Brought to you by cutting edge promoters Jack Arts (Red Bull Music Academy, Book Slam) and maestros of the pop-up menu, Cult Events (Pisco Fuego, The Candlestick Maker), SCHOOL DINNERS takes our students back to school for a slap up meal that nods playfully to those unlamented lunches of childhood, before an hour’s wit and wisdom from some of the nation’s finest and funniest minds.

Fuelled by our belief (sadly from personal experience) that education can be wasted on the young, SCHOOL DINNERS will be a unique night of gastronomy and enlightenment, while also providing much-needed funds for the Central Foundation Boys’ School.

Tickets are onsale now priced £60 + bf per person, which includes a four course meal and canapés. To buy tickets and for more info on School Dinners visit www.schooldinners.info
