The main Conversation Dinner space is now full but if you wish to come and join in then please do. The Restaurant has agreed to open up more spaces but we recommend you book a table with the Restaurant separately to avoid disappointment. Be there by 7pm.
Hosted by Theodore Zeldin in collaboration with Katharina Lorenz and Amber Forrest, this event invites the people of Nottingham on a journey through a conversation with someone they do not know. You will be given a Menu from Starters to Desserts but instead of food the Menu is full of topics to discuss and guide you. These topics are about your experience in life and the lessons you have drawn from them and are curated in such a way as to help define your future path.
Previous participants have been amazed by how inspiring the conversation can become. Many discover what they have in common with a stranger, who sometimes becomes a friend, and learn about themselves through a different set of eyes.
This is the first event of a project to create a Portrait of the People of Nottingham, revealing the hidden talents and aspirations in different communities and occupations. Great adventures begin with great conversations.
Full meals can be purchased if you wish from Jamie’s Menu.
This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.
