Bompas & Parr Dinner of doom at The Harley Museum & Gallery

A culinary and film extravaganza…

Visitors will be taken on a mystery tour – from the Harley Gallery, around the Welbeck Estate, to the magnificent Welbeck Abbey, which is never normally open to the public. After passing through some of the intriguing underground spaces at the Abbey, the event will culminate in a screening of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in The Titchfield Library, built for the 6th Duke of Portland. The occasion will be enhanced by lighting and sound effects. At key moments in the screening,  spectators will be able to enjoy food inspired by the movie, devised by Bompas & Parr for this occasion.

Sam Bompas & Harry Parr create and curate spectacular culinary events. Their projects “operate in the space between food and architecture”, and explore how the taste of food is altered through synaesthesia, performance and setting. Clients include London Design Festival, UCL, Kraft, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Warwick Castle, Hendrick’s Gin and CABE Climate Change Festival.

Set in the grounds of the Welbeck Estate, the Harley Gallery holds touring exhibitions of contemporary art, craft, photography and design, and has a shop selling high calibre British craft. The adjoining Museum shows magnificent examples of fine and decorative arts from the Portland Collection, built up over four centuries by a single family.
