Creative Studio Supper Club presented by Townsend Restaurant

Kick off your evening with a supper club-style foraging dinner inspired by artist Emma Talbot, set to a backdrop of stunning East London rooftop views. Townsend will use Emma’s recent time in Italy during the Max Mara Art Prize residency and the connection to nature that flows through her work as the basis for a one-off menu of locally-foraged produce and a selection of natural wines.

£39 per person includes three courses plus snacks.
