Selfridges and The Wilderness create culinary drama with Shakespearean banquet

Alex Claridge The Wilderness

Independent restaurant, The Wilderness, will be taking over The Balcony at Selfridges for one night only (28th Sept), to serve an elaborate six-course meal inspired by England’s famous bard, as part of Selfridges ‘Live + Loud celebrates Shakespeare ReFASHIONed’ festivities.

Diners will be able to indulge in culinary theatre like no other as The Wilderness’ head chef, Alex Claridge, treats literature and food enthusiasts to an array of unusual dishes, including those inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet 104, an edible poem and even a chocolate skull filled with a bursting cocktail.

Drama at the dinner table will continue with the help of smoking mains and balloons that guests will need to pop to taste an exquisitely unique dessert.

This unusual dining experience is just one of many events taking place as part of Selfridges ‘Live + Loud celebrates Shakespeare ReFASHIONed’ festival.

Marking four hundred years since the death of Shakespeare, the iconic Birmingham store is playing homage to the world famous writer through a series of ground-breaking live performances, fashion collaborations, beauty moments and more.
