A Bury St Edmunds-based events company is inviting people with a sense of adventure to take part in its next theatrical dining experience.

Diners entering The Artist’s Studio on October 11-13 will be transported back in time to meet French artist Henri Matisse.

They will encounter Matisse’s odalisque models and contemporaries like Pablo Picasso, while savouring a feast of Moroccan and French-inspired delicacies.

The Curious Pygmy Club introduced itself to sell-out crowds with Doctor Moreau’s Laboratory Feast in July and is promising to once again wow audiences with its ‘delicious menu and interactive theatre’.

Of the pop up restaurant’s latest venture, creative director Joy Laing-Buisson said: “Matisse explored a lot of Europe and North Africa whilst he was working on his now famous paintings and drawings so we’re harnessing the essence of that here.

“There will be lots of exciting twists and turns and, of course, the food will be colourful, exotic and lavish - just like Matisse’s early paintings.”

Guests can also expect to learn the finer details of life-drawing and will be given the materials and tuition to aid them in taking part.

And while diners need not be artists themselves, they are encouraged to go ‘fuelled with a sense of adventure’.

Tickets are priced at £38 for the October 11 and 12 events, which start at 6.30pm, and at £17 for the October 13 event, which will start at 3pm and will feature a Moroccan afternoon tea instead of a dinner feast.

The Artist’s Studio will take place at the Unitarian Meeting House, in Churchgate Street, Bury.
