Presenting our weekly co. mailer, featuring a host of handpicked recommendations from the left-field of London’s arts and culture world. Lock down your aerials..:

1. THE WALDORF PROJECT

Finding a point of harmony between art and food: The Waldorf Project is an immersive experience on a grand stage, where art is consumed through all the senses – inviting 48 guests per night. The experience unites the sense through food, scent, drink, movement & sound. The key to this concept is the synergy between the various aspects of the event – enlisting a choreographer, production designer, costumer designer, and all orchestrated by the artist Sean Rogg.

– WHERE: Oval Space, Bethnal Green

– WHEN: February 5th to 11th
