Opening its doors exclusively to 100 guests, the evening began with a tipple in the Gin Palace before an actor led tour of the London Dungeon, including a visit to Mrs Lovett’s pie shop where guests sampled her infamous pies, before braving the alleyways of Whitechapel where Jack the Ripper stalked the streets with fear. If that wasn’t enough guests were treated to a bottle of Gin Fizz in the ‘Ten Bells pub’ and a hair raising drop ride to doom all concluding in the Tavern.
An East End landlady and landlord kept guests entertained in the Tavern, telling tales about the Great Beer Flood while guests enjoyed food served from Food by Dish. The caterer served rustic platters, featuring black pudding scotch eggs and giant Gruyere cheese straws; followed by a selection of pub classic bowl food options, including Sausage and Mash with crispy onions and Fisherman’s pie with cheddar crust; and dessert canapés such as sea salt crusted chocolate tart and passionfruit and coconut macaroon.
Rebecca Thomas, Events Manager at Merlin Events London commented: “The London Dungeon is one of our more interactive corporate packages. The engaging audience participation events really take guests out of their comfort zone. It’s a great way to break the ice. The Tavern pub is a great addition to our packages and is the perfect, quirky setting in which to network.”
