“The most wonderful concept!! Food and philosophical enquiry. So happy to know such dinners exist in the world."
Feast Like Never Before
We are inviting you to dinner to feast like never before and explore what we really think about the big things in life we rarely talk about.
Some things are just really hard to talk about. They’re challenging, awkward or taboo, and so together we've decided they're not fit for the dinner table. But what would happen if we changed all that? What would happen if we brought some danger to dinner and things got real all of a sudden?
Hard Things To Talk About is an immersive dinner series doing just that. By exploring complex, often intangible themes through food and wine, evocative performance and spoken word, this layered, multi-sensory experience is designed to inspire and delight, and stir great conversations that explore what we really think about the big things in life we rarely talk about.
We're serving up Sex, Death, Fear, Failure, Desire, Loss, Loneliness, Bias, Taboo, The Inner Life, Our Dark Side, The Unimagined, The Unknown, The Universe, Hope and Enlightenment.
After an overwhelming response and sold out launch events exploring the complex and curly topic of Bias, we've been back in the kitchen and are excited to bring you something equally enticing and sticky to feast on! As part of VIVID Ideas and as a nod to all things light, we’re delving bravely and curiously into the intriguing topic of Enlightenment.
It will be a dinner like no other you've been to before.
Take a leap into the unknown.
We promise it’ll be fun!

The Art of Conversation
Memorable conversations are sometimes playful and cheeky or bold and adventurous – other times deep and insightful or challenging and gritty. Whatever their tone, the best conversations are honest, human and real. Great conversation can draw you in, stir your mind, lift your spirit or open your heart. Great conversation can shape how we understand each other, ourselves, and the world we live in. Human history itself has been described as an unending conversation…
Conversation can spark ideas, inspire action, evoke empathy and shape behaviour.
Great conversation can even change the world.
"So amazing to have new and meaningful conversations with old friends."
"We really talked...and listened...to each other. So rare. So important."
"We started the night as strangers, but shared so much. Just incredible."
