Epicurians and poetry enthusiasts - join us for a sumptuous dinner and stimulating conversation, on our London houseboat, named after the sea-nymph Galatée, a warm and welcoming venue on Regent's canal.

This is an opportunity to hear some inspiring hiphop poetry from Chris Beschi and to dialogue with him on the creative process behind his work.

Our dinner promises dishes full of colour and aroma, that are both healthy and vibrant, with plenty of vegetables, herbs and delicate flavour combinations.

Menu (all fresh market produce):
Prosecco and canapés
Herb-stuffed tomatoes with seasonal leaves and goat’s cheese, served with crusty bread
Bulgur pilaf with red peppers, chives and chanterelle mushrooms
Char-grilled asparagus with ricotta
Layered red fruit and cheesecake mousse, and Amaretto cake
Coffee and chocolates
BYO drinks

This evening’s guest artist, Chris Beschi, aka Poetcurious, is a multidisciplinary Hiphop artist best known for his work as a spoken word poet, but he is also a youth teacher, artist, mentor, counsellor and performer.

« I want to explore my practice as a hiphop artist and how my experiences in my life and education inform my practice as an arts facilitator in an EBD primary school. I am guided by my experiences as an artist and art student as well as the tension I have experienced between my own cultural definition of self; my education and my upbringing.»
