The Worshipful Company of Bakers has commissioned a new dinner play to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.
The Great Fire of London Remembered - An Evening with Samuel Pepys takes place at Bakers Hall from Monday 20 to Friday 24 June. Tickets for Monday and Tuesday have already sold out.
The piece itself is a site-specific performance with elements of ‘promenade theatre’. It will begin on the Charter Gallery during the drinks reception and continue between courses in the Hall, where the performers will share the stage with diners.
The meal will be provided by The Cook and the Butler, one of the City’s best catering companies, matched with a selection of fine wines supplied by Tanners of Shrewsbury.
This new dinner play has been commissioned especially by the Company to commemorate the 350th Anniversary of the Great Fire, which started in the bakery in Pudding Lane of Thomas Farynor, the King’s Baker who was a Liveryman of the Company.
